Lecturer, School of Business, Western Sydney University

My PhD thesis studied the consequences of the commercialisation of a common pool resource (CPR) & the influence of power and politics on CPR management. I am interested in the consequences of marketing in terms of fairness, quality of life and environmental sustainability for the stakeholders involved.

I am currently researching how the Australian energy industry is responding to climate change & issues of gender in the uptake of institutional supports for parents.
