Secretary, Te Pūnaha Matatini Whānau
Rae is a PhD student in the Department in Economics at the University of Auckland. Her research focuses on the impact of individual workers on the firm innovation process, and the implications of knowledge transfers on productivity. Her current project explores how a firm is able to recognise and exploit external information to develop new products and methods, taking into account the learning process across workers of different skills over time. Rae is passionate about using data to solve complex problems and to make informed decisions, and she is keen to meet Te Pūnaha Matatini researchers from diverse disciplines to learn new ideas and research approaches.
