Penny is currently undertaking a PhD at the Institute of New Economic Thinking at Oxford with Professor J. Doyne Farmer. Her doctoral research is focused on modelling the process by which countries grow and develop by expanding their productive capacity and economic complexity. Penny is also particularly interested in technological evolution, and her previous research developed a computational model of technological progress within an evolutionary, agent-based setting. Before joining the Institute of New Economic Thinking, Penny worked as an economist in Australia, where she predominantly focused on issues relating to energy, resources and climate change.
