About James Lennox

James’ research expertise is in the development and application of computable general equilibrium models. At the Centre of Policy Studies, James leads the urban economic modelling programme and has developed large-scale spatial general equilibrium models of both the Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan regions.

These models are being applied to assess the long-run spatial and macroeconomic impacts of transport infrastructure investments and strategic land use planning interventions for public sector clients.

James has previously held a Marie Curie Fellowship at the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (Venice, Italy), worked as a researcher at Landcare Research (Auckland and Christchurch, New Zealand) and held a postdoctoral fellowship at the CSIRO (Canberra, Australia). His previous work has addressed questions relating to climate policy, wider environmental, water and energy issues, and tourism.
