Chris recently graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce with Honours in Economics from Monash University. He has worked with Sapere’s economics team on a variety of projects over two summers, including an evaluation of the Victorian Government’s Investment Attraction Grants program, several feasibility studies for major developments, and a Regulatory Impact Statement for the Local Government (Land Information) Regulations 2021.
Chris’ Honours thesis paper was on the topic of online on-demand livestreaming of major sporting events. He applied Australian audience viewership data from the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games to construct an economic model of Broadcast Video on Demand (BVOD) live sport. Utilising regression analysis based on viewership data from OzTAM, the key findings were that broadcasts with events of high significance for Australians, and broadcasts of four popular participation sports (athletics, swimming, basketball, and surfing), were associated with increases in viewership on streaming platforms.
