Career philosophy

“I have been very fortunate to have been mentored by some great economists, but the most important advice I received was from one of my ANU professors who told me to have confidence in my own judgement and to understand that for the most significant decisions you make, you should strive to be true to yourself rather than pander to the wishes and expectations of others.”
