Emily joined Frontier Economics in 2014 and has worked across all of Frontier’s practice areas.

Her recent work is focused on providing regulatory and competition advice in the water industry, largely as part of the recent price control. Emily also works in the Public Policy team, with expertise in policy evaluation and market assessments. Her studies in Social Policy have given her previous exposure to a range of European policy settings. 

She took a secondment to our affiliate, Frontier Economics Asia Pacific, in 2019. While in Melbourne she was involved in on-going regulatory issues for water companies and a successful merger appeal in telecommunications. She has also applied competition economics to a European merger case in London.  

Emily holds a MSc in Economics (Merit) from Birkbeck College, University of London. She also holds a MA (Honours) in Social Policy and Economics (First Class) from the University of Edinburgh, where she spent her third year at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
