I am a Senior Lecturer at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne, with a background in philosophy (PhD, University of New South Wales) and sociology (M.A., University of Frankfurt, Germany).
My research focuses on exploring governance and organizational dynamics in the university sector. I have researched and published on issues such as universities’ internal responses to national funding settings, the politics of research performance measurement, universities’ organizational autonomy, and the unintended effects of large-scale policy and governance reform on institutional diversity.
I further have longstanding research interests in the sociology of organizations, the philosophy of technology, and phenomenological philosophy.
