Senior Research Fellow
SA Centre for Economic Studies
Faculty of the Professions
I work across disciplines, having originally started off as a sociologist working in urban and regional economics, then moving into social policy and welfare activation research and evaluation before returning to labour market, social and economic study via risk sociology and behavioural economics. If pushed, I'd say my specialist knowledge is in youth studies and 'active ageing', but I also have a sociological interest in workplace management, including the interaction between workplace cultures and employee attitudes and behaviour inside and outside the workplace. I have worked in survey design, and use quantitative and qualitative research methods, including meta-analysis and systematic reviews.
