I have had teaching and research experience at the University of Melbourne, the Research School of Social Sciences at Australian National University and the University of New South Wales. I have wide-ranging academic publications in Australian and English journals and newspapers, on a breadth of economic, economic history and health economics subjects, including labour market issues, primary health care, health reforms, and Indigenous issues.
In the three years since working as a health economist in the Department of Rural Health and more recently in the Department of Public Practice, I have developed two areas of particular interest, in primary and community health care policy and analysis, and in the socioeconomic determinants of Indigenous (ill) health.
Primary health care work includes an ARC Council grant for 2002-2004, on Rural General Practitioner Costs, Returns & Relative Value (Chief Investigator). Indigenous work includes an audit, evaluation and strategies to promote Koori employment & skill Development in the Goulburn Valley (Victoria), for the Commonwealth Department of Employment & Workplace Relations, through Koori Economic Employment Training Agency (KEETA).
