Personal profile

Biography

I am a lecturer in public policy in the Department of Modern History, Politics and International Relations. I received my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh (2006). Before I joined Macquarie in July 2017, I taught in the United States, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Malaysia.

I have published on the politics of administrative reform in Italy and Europe, on fiscal federalism and on the political economy of banking.

I am currently working on these projects:

  • Austerity and public administration reform in Europe (with Fabrizio di Mascio, Alessandro Natalini and Edoardo Ongaro). Two articles are currently under review
  • The politics of the liberalization of professions in Southern Europe. For the past three years I have done fieldwork in Greece and an article (with Natalia Papamakariou) is currently under review.

 

At Macquarie I have taught the following units in the Master of Politics and Public Policy:

POIR900 Policy Design and Practice

POL 822 Studying Public Policy

POIR823 Public Management and Governance

POL 802 Comparative Public Policy

POL 833 Intergovernmental Relations
