Wing Hsieh
Research Officer

Wing joined BehaviourWorks in February 2020 and is currently collaborating on behavioural insights research with the FairWork Ombudsman.

Wing holds a Masters in Law (focusing on behavioural law and economics) from Harvard University and honours degrees in Law and in Economics from the University of Adelaide. She is also currently undertaking a PhD in Behaviour Change at Monash University on reducing prejudice against migrants.

Wing’s career experience spans both public and private sectors. As an economist and management consultant, she has worked across numerous state and federal government departments, financial institutions and consumer services organisations in Australia. She has applied her expertise in analysis, research and policy development to broad subject matter such labour markets, demography, industrial relations, business sector liaison, organisational restructuring, human service program reviews, business case development, program/service design and evaluation.

More recently she has supported work on the application of behavioural approaches to diversity and inclusion programs in the organisational and community contexts. With her breadth of experience across sectors, subject matter and disciplines, Wing has honed her skills in applying rigorous and practical analytical approaches to applied research.

Reflecting her formative studies in development economics, Wing is passionate about testing interventions in real-world settings under randomised control designs to understand what works. This has carried through to her PhD research agenda where she is undertaking a systematic review with meta-analysis to understand what works to reduce prejudice in field settings; developing a framework based on expert insights on what matters for an intervention is to be scalable and developing a scalable intervention that will be trialled in a community setting.

When she isn’t trying to understand “what works”, Wing can be found reading Lonely Planet guides for her next holiday.
