Senior Research Fellow, Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS), Victoria University

Dr Lennox develops and applies large-scale economic models to support policy-making. His current focus is on urban and transportation economics. Previously, he has worked in Italy, New Zealand and Australia on topics including climate change, innovation, energy, water resources and tourism.

At Victoria University's Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS), Dr Lennox leads the urban economic modelling programme and is responsible for developing and applying CoPS' large-scale Spatial Computable General Equilibrium (SCGE) models. These models have been used to assess wider economic effects of major transport infrastructure investments and land use planning strategies for several public sector clients.
