PhD Candidate in Political Economy and Economic Sociology, University of Melbourne

I am a PhD candidate at the Youth Research Centre, University of Melbourne, where I examine the experience of labour market transitions between young people, focusing on the role that trade unions play in these transitions. I am interested in conceptions of youth and young people, work, unions, and labour market transitions.

My publication history includes The Guardian, The Age, Overland Journal, and The Conversation.

Since 2014, I have been involved in teaching a number of courses at the University of Melbourne and Victoria University, guest lecturing in Political Economy, Australian Politics, Trade Union Politics and Youth Work.

All views expressed are mine, and in no way reflect the positions of any institutions, organisations or businesses.
