Hi! My name is Jasmine. I am currently a senior economist/manager with the macroeconomics team at Deloitte Access Economics (DAE).
I am an applied macro-economist, with experiences in macroeconomic forecasting for the Australian economy and conducting economic analyses in different industries. I have worked on projects spanning a wide range of industries, including construction, energy, education, arts and water.
Prior to joining DAE, I was with next door neighbour, KPMG. I completed my PhD in Economics at the Centre of Applied Macroeconomic Analysis in the Australian National University. Before my PhD, I worked as an economist with the Economist Service at the Ministry of Trade and Industry and as an energy analyst in Singapore.
I also have an interest in fiscal and monetary policy and the international transmission of shocks. My current research focus, which I work on during my free time, are on monetary policy and carry trade collapses. My approach to research is one that is highly motivated by the external environment, particularly the linkages between different players in the global economy.
As an applied macro-economist, I work towards facilitating better understanding of the economy and economics, which in turn help inform clients and academic audiences. I am a firm believer of the concept of Pro bono economics.
When I am not working on my research, I enjoy training (resistance/strength training & powerlifting), eating simple and healthy, writing, reading, travelling. I am also currently trying to get back into running. I used to write a lot more and have written for various publications including Woroni, HerCanberra, ThoughtCatalog, The Conversation.
On this website, you will read about my muses, thoughts and ideas – all things intellectual, geeky and frivolous.
I can also be contacted via LinkedIn or the Contact Me form on this website.
A prerequisite for being a good economist is an ample dose of humility.
