Research Associate, School of Social Sciences, Monash University

I am no longer with Monash University.
I have a career background in policy and research with a focus on employment and social issues.

A full overview of my research, professional background, current activities, contact details, as well as links to my publications, conference papers, articles and research reports organised according to themes, are available on my website:
or click website icon on the right hand side of this page.

I completed a PhD at the end of 2011 on the issues that had emerged from my working life in social welfare since the 1980s - specifically about the growth and effects of insecure employment - and its implications for social policy - a theme taken up in many of my papers.
