Research

My research has been published in academic journals and other formats. I have also been hired as a consultant to conduct research for national political campaigns. I was the principal investigator of the 2019 Cooperative Australian Election Survey. The largest election study conducted in Australia to date, this was a $140,000 survey of 7,000 Australians conducted during the 2019 federal election involving 10 researchers from five universities.
