Honorary Senior Fellow, Centre for Vocational and Educational Policy, University of Melbourne

After a decade in government and another in management consulting, I joined academia in 2008. I have worked at the University of Melbourne as a teacher, researcher, consultant, author and media commentator on higher education leadership, policy and strategy.

From June 2017 to June 2018 I worked at Monash University as the Senior Higher Education Adviser in the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, a role that gave insight into the advocacy work of Universities Australia and the Group of Eight peak bodies.

Now seeking new roles and projects with a special interest in tertiary education policy reform, the future of work, and organisational change projects.
