Biography

I work as part of an interdisciplinary team of academics and policy makers on the ARC Linkage grant “Working longer, staying healthy, keeping productive”. We investigate the complex longitudinal relationships between work participation, work conditions and hours, social and gendered disadvantage, income, savings and mature age workers’ productivity and health. I also work on a Discovery research project “Addressing the hour-glass ceiling: New case for action on gender equality”. This project aims to quantify the underlying and uncounted time limit affecting gender equality in health, wealth and the labour market, laying the foundation for new policy action.

I undertake longitudinal analyses using the HILDA (Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia Survey), the German SOEP (Socio-Economic Panel) data, support the analysis of a workplace manager survey, and be co-investigator in research projects with other external institutes/universities. I mainly manage the quantitative aspects of the project, liaise with partners, key stakeholders and contribute to project publications and reports, including dissemination with key stakeholders including policy makers and business leaders.
