My research spans political science, law, international relations, security studies and public administration. At present, I am engaged in research on:
The governance of security threats
International policy transfer
Elite transnational networks
Emergency policy and crisis management.
Staying current with the latest developments in the fast-moving landscape of national security politics is critical. All the courses I teach are therefore heavily informed by my ongoing research. Currently, I teach two MA courses at the National Security College:
Crisis Management in National Security Strategy
In Australia, I regularly present my research on the governance of security (aviation, maritime and critical infrastructure protection) to the Commonwealth and State governments. I have also provided public submissions to the Independent National Security Legislation Monitor and the Queensland Parliament on counter-terrorism and security legislation.
