Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Workplace Leadership, University of Melbourne

I work in the fields of employment relations and labour market studies. My interests include minimum wages, gender pay equity, skill shortages, and youth employment outcomes.

I have consulted widely to the Australian Government on issues including the aged care workforce, settlement of new immigrants, occupational health and safety, and public-sector productivity.

My research has been covered by all major national media outlets.
