Principal Economist


Sarah first joined NZIER in 2017 and returned in 2020 after spending time at Capital and Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) as Analytics Team Leader in Strategy, Innovation and Performance. At CCDHB, she built a new multi-disciplinary team of analysts and led the development of:
