My work is informed by over a decade as a practitioner in a wide range of administrative, teaching and research roles within higher education. In 2011 I was Worldwide Universities Network Visiting Researcher at the University of Auckland. In 2014 I was Grant Holder and Principal Investigator of a Higher Education Academy Project. I recently participated in a higher education project in Bangkok, funded by the British Government's Newton Fund. I am currently working with Professor Michael Mintrom at the Australia and New Zealand School of Government in Melbourne researching public policy. I am an Associate Editor of the Higher Education Research & Development journal and a member of the Society for Research into Higher Education. I combine academic work with consultancy.
