Nick Preval

Nick is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Sustainable Cities research group. Nick’s PhD, completed in 2015, focused on the econometric and statistical analysis of large scale public health interventions. In particular it focused on data from the Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart programme, a multi-million dollar programme that part funds insulation and heating retrofits for New Zealand households. Other elements of the thesis included a policy comparison of the programme with Australia’s unsuccessful Home Insulation Programme.

Nick’s Masters thesis was a cost benefit analysis of improved home heating based on data from the Housing, Insulation and Health Study carried out by He Kainga Oranga, the Housing and Health Research Programme.
