Ms Eleanor Ruth Malbon

Business School
Centre Social Impact

Ellie Malbon believes working to create an equitable, just and sustainable world is the responsibility of community, government and universities. 

These beliefs underpin her work as a Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Impact, UNSW, where she is part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers committed to addressing inequality.  

Ellie is an expert in systems-based research methods and uses these along with community efforts to help find solutions to complex problems.

Her current research focuses on equity in the National Disability Insurance Scheme, particularly through responsible market stewardship. 

She is a candidate for a Masters of Economics and Commerce specialising in NDIS markets, due to be completed in 2020, and has authored multiple journal articles on equity, systems methodology and health.
