Boris Lam

Boris is a recent Master of Business Economics graduate from Monash University. As part of his graduate degree, he completed a thesis where he studied the effect of extreme temperatures on farm profitability. A portion of his research involved predicting long-term changes in farm profitability by incorporating projected climate data under different emissions scenarios into his model.

During his time with Natural Capital Economics so far, Boris has used econometric modelling to identify factors that drive water demand for a major water provider in Queensland. He has also performed cost-benefit analysis to evaluate adaptation options for coastal communities at risk from tidal inundation events.

Prior to graduating, Boris completed an internship in a multinational professional services firm. He conducted research and developed quantification methodology to estimate the economic impacts of a government tax policy. Through this role, he also analysed survey data and extracted insights on stakeholder preferences for a business case.
