Mathew joined our team in 2021 following the completion of his postgraduate study in economics at the University of Otago. Mathew has hit the ground running and has been involved in a range of engagements, spanning securities class actions, transport policy and journey analytics, economic regulation, network pricing and consumer competition matters. Mathew’s broad experience has been leveraged to inform regulatory proceedings, legislative amendments, acquisitions and policy development.
Mathew’s thesis investigated economic insecurity and negative health outcomes in New Zealand, utilising microeconometric techniques to examine consumers’ behavioural responses to increases in economic insecurity. His research reflects his interest in understanding consumer behaviour and creating effective policy responses to tackle emerging problems in society.
Mathew’s microeconomics expertise obtained throughout his studies enables him to investigate and resolve complex economic problems. His law qualification equips him with an additional skill set, enabling him to evaluate and resolve real-world competition, regulation and policy challenges.
