I completed my PhD in Social Science and Policy at the University of New South Wales in 2005. I taught at the University of Sydney and University of Western Sydney and commenced my appointment as Lecturer at the University of Manchester in 2006. I lecture on comparative politics, governance, public policy and political rhetoric. I am the Co-convenor of the Interpretive Political Science Association Specialist Group of the UK Political Studies Association and the Deputy Editor of the Revue Internationale de Philosophie. Beyond academia, I have worked as a researcher in a social policy research centre, as a political advisor to a Member of the New South Wales Legislative Council, as a civil servant in the Australian Public Service and as a researcher in a non-government agency.
