About me

My current job is professor in the practice of higher education policy at the Centre for Social Research and Methods at the Australian National University. I work from Melbourne.

I have worked in higher education policy since 1997, when I started as an adviser to the then minister, Dr David Kemp.

Since then I have worked for two think-tanks (the Grattan Institute and the Centre for Independent Studies) and three University of Melbourne vice-chancellors, starting with the late Alan Gilbert, continuing with Kwong Lee Dow, and finishing with Glyn Davis.

I keep a link to the University of Melbourne as an honorary fellow in its Centre for the Study of Higher Education.

I was a member of the 2013-14 government review of the demand driven system for funding higher education and the 2016-17 expert panel advising on higher education reform.

My Grattan Institute higher education reports can be found here.

This is my third blog, starting with Catallaxy in 2003, moving to a solo blog in 2006, and at this blog from August 2011 to focus on higher education issues. None of my views should be attributed to past or present employers or colleagues (despite my best efforts to persuade them on some points).
