Our core staff includes highly qualified scientists, mostly with a PhD, with research and consulting experience in a broad range of disciplines, from the natural- or engineered- environment, to the life sciences.

Our research-active team regularly engages in professional development activities, including workshop, training, and conference attendance. This allows maintaining professional credentials, reinforcing fundamental practices and exploring cutting-edge methodologies.

In addition to our core staff, we have an extensive network of affiliated partners, from which we can recruit the most suitable profile, to work on your project. Econumerics staff can operate as private advisers or engage in formal academic collaborations, under the affiliation and patronage of various Australian universities.
