My research interests are in the areas of higher education values, policies and practices as well as a subset of this interest – the internationalization of higher education and its influence on leadership in higher education, policy change and institutional change.
I am currently pursuing my EdD (Doctor in Higher Education) with the University of Liverpool, which I expect to complete in 2015.
I am also passionate about helping Monash students develop academic literacies i.e. the ability access information responsibly and accurately, as well as the ability to think and read.
