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. I also review mostly non-higher education books on the Goodreads site.
