National Institute of Labour Studies
My research spans the fields of industrial relations and applied labour economics. The major focus of my research to date, including in my doctoral thesis, has been the operation and effects of Australian minimum wages. Other current research interests include gender pay equity, decentralisation of wage bargaining, and the consequences of skill shortages. I have consulted widely to the Australian Government, employers, trade unions, and other leading research bodies on a variety of topics, such as the aged care and community care workforce, the settlement experiences of new immigrants to Australia, health and safety in the natural resources industry, and the measurement of public sector productivity. My work is published in leading journals and has been reported in a range of national media.
