Alexandra Spicer, Green Templeton College student profileMaster of Public Policy
2019

I come to Green Templeton with several years experience as a senior policy analyst at the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). My undergraduate study was at the University of Technology Sydney, where I graduated with the University Medal in Economics.

Since then, I have most enjoyed work that involves applied economic analysis and the development and assessment of policy. In my most recent role at the RBA, I analysed and recommended solutions related to financial system stability and bank resolution. This included work for the Council of Financial Regulators, the coordinating body for Australia’s financial regulatory agencies.

A strong supporter of diversity, until recently I was Deputy Chair of a volunteer group working to ensure gender is not an impediment to RBA staff reaching their full potential. Through the Blavatnik School’s Master of Public Policy, I look forward to learning multidisciplinary approaches to addressing gender and economic inequality as well as developing the deep understanding needed to become a leading contributor to governance and policymaking both in Australia and abroad. I am sure this will be complemented by my time at Green Templeton, where I intend to immerse myself in all there is to offer, both academically and socially.
