Tom is an economist determined to make a positive impact.

Tom uses his knowledge and skills to help communities to overcome the challengers they face. He wants to shape economic policy that tackles inequality, climate change and political polarisation.

Tom has a diverse range of interests from community infrastructure to education, but the interests closest to his heart are public transport and walkable cities. He hopes to use his skills in forecasting and analysis to change the way Australians move around cities and regions.

When he’s not working, Tom can be found down at the beach, hiking, skiing and camping.
