She is co-author (with Tanya Fitzgerald) of Travelling towards a Mirage? Gender, Leadership, and Higher Education (2010), which examines equity and equality practices and policies in Australian and New Zealand universities and the impact these have had on the participation of women as leaders and managers in higher education.
