Kylie brings nearly three decades of experience in undertaking social research and evaluation in Australia. She has also worked with data science and innovation teams internationally to advance methods and practice. Kylie has designed and managed many complex data collections across a range of social issues and topics, with particular expertise in longitudinal studies and vulnerable populations including children, migrants, veterans, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Understanding human behaviour and effectiveness of the supports, services, programs or policies that attempt to change them for the benefit of all Australians, are her passion.

Before Ipsos, she was Managing Director of Social Policy and Evaluation Research at Colmar Brunton and held management roles at both I-view, AC Nielsen and AGB McNair.
