Dr Jananie William is a lecturer in Actuarial Studies in the Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies and Statistics and Advisor to The Social Outcomes Lab. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia and has a PhD in Actuarial Studies. She has over 15 years of experience in both traditional and non-traditional areas of actuarial practice through industry and academic roles. In her previous role as an actuarial consultant on the Senior Leadership Team in Commercial Pricing for a general insurer in London, she was responsible for delivering multiple commercial pricing projects, with management responsibilities for diverse teams and numerous stakeholders. She has transferred this expertise to her current roles as she aims to implement modern actuarial and stastical methods in non-traditional areas of actuarial work. Her goal is to diversify the actuarial profession and contribute to the evidence-base for public policy discussion.

Jananie's specific research interests are in public health, public policy and human services with a focus on women’s issues over their lifecourse. She enjoys applying actuarial techniques to these areas to provide holistic solutions to complex problems and ultimately produce better outcomes for individuals and society. Her current research projects include costing studies in maternal health, the lifetime health costs of women who experience domestic violence and gender disparities in retirement incomes. She also teaches advanced actuarial courses including the Actuarial Control Cycle and Advanced General Insurance. Prior to joining the university in 2015, Jananie spent nine years working in various actuarial consultant roles in the general insurance and investment advisory industry in Australia and the UK.
