Vice Chancellor's Postdoctoral research fellow, RMIT University

My work looks at youth and education policy, particularly in relation to emerging technologies and the future of work.

My recent research contributed to reforms of higher education admissions policy and the use of the Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR) in Australia. I am interested in how young people are prepared for Higher Education and work, especially in relation to questions of disadvantage, equity, access, gender, and race.

I am currently working on my first book with Palgrave MacMillan -- 'Hacking the Future' -- which traces the intersection of young people’s lives, networked technologies, and the future of work.
