My main teaching responsibility at Griffith is a second year undergraduate course called Political Leadership. It looks at leadership rather than just leaders – a crucial distinction!

I also contribute lectures to several other courses including Comparative European Politics, and research methods for research students. Over the years I have taught courses in public policy theory and policy analysis, democratic theory and practice, and – one of my favourites – big, first year, introductions to political studies.

PhD students

I currently supervise:

  • Bahadir Celiktemur, looking at how people with communication disabilities can be included in deliberative democracy (at Warwick, commenced 2012)

I have also supervised or advised numerous other students including:

If you are thinking of doing a research degree, have a look at my Research page, download some papers, and have a think about linkages between my work and yours. If you are still keen, or have any questions, do please get in touch to discuss. I am always keen to hear from prospective research students.
