Geoffrey holds a Bachelor of Economics with first class Honours in Economic Statistics from the University of Queensland where he graduated in 1999. Prior to joining ITLS Geoffrey worked for three years at the Reserve Bank of Australia in Sydney in the Financial System Stability Department. In his doctoral research Geoffrey focused on public transport issues, in particular the challenge to grow public transport patronage and the role of frequency and connectivity on the demand for bus services along 'Strategic Bus Corridors'. Research projects in ITLS focus on the use of stated choice methods and optimal pricing theories as tools to support the development of public transport outcomes that are both socially optimal as well as financially viable to operators in the presence of optimal subsidy payments.
