Career Summary

Biography

I am one of Australia’s leading commentators on the future of work. I study and engage in public debates about many aspects of contemporary work and employment relations, including technological disruption, the gig economy, workforce ageing, and the minimum wage.

My contributions include influential academic articles, commissioned reports for governments, editorial roles, classroom teaching, media appearances, and events.

Before joining the University of Newcastle, I worked in research focused roles at the University of Melbourne (2015-20) and at Flinders University (2010-15), where I contributed to major studies of Australian and international workers, workforces and organisations. While at the University of Melbourne, I helped to run the Study of Australian Leadership (SAL), the largest survey ever undertaken of Australian workplace leaders. And while at Flinders University, I was involved in administering and analysing major surveys of the aged and disability care workforces, minimum wage recipients, and migrants to Australia.

My work is published in highly respected international journals such as Human Resource Management Journal (A), Group & Organization Management (A), Journal of Industrial Relations (A), and Applied Economics (A).
