Liam joined Natural Capital Economics in 2022 after completing a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Economics, as well as a Bachelor of Business majoring in Sustainable Enterprise at Griffith University. He recently completed his honours thesis where he implemented a discrete choice experiment and an ordinal regression model to investigate the environmental and social attributes of businesses and their impacts on consumer preferences and customer loyalty.
As a new addition to the team at Natural Capital Economics, Liam has already made meaningful contributions towards a range of projects. This has included undertaking an economic context appraisal for both Moreton Bay and Mackay Regional Councils as a part of their Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategies, a data stocktake for a socio-economic outcome evaluation of water sharing plans in regional NSW and providing a review of the relevant literature to inform ongoing research regarding the price elasticity of demand for mushrooms.
Prior to working at Natural Capital Economics, Liam worked for Urban Art Projects as a Sustainability Coordinator, as well as spending over three years as both a Product Specialist and Energy Specialist at Tesla. In his role as a Sustainability Coordinator, Liam was pivotal in developing Urban Art Project’s ‘Artwork Ingredient List’, a tool for calculating the carbon footprint for artwork. Liam is passionate about how environmental and natural resource economic concepts can be used to best manage Earth’s natural environment.
