I’m a policy wonk with a degree in economics who has 6 years of experience undertaking public policy research for a number of Australian Government Agencies and Universities. Now that I’ve written that down that “6 years’ experience” part it occurs to me that I might not sound like the authoritative figure that I would like to be. Anyways, I’m currently a Research Fellow at a Research Institute that is in no way associated with, nor endorses, this blog.
The primary reason I’ve entered the blogosphere, finding myself in the company of the good people at Ozblogistan, is to force myself to get on top of a broad range of public and social policy issues that will hopefully appeal to a broader audience interested in evidence based policy.
If you’re an established expert in an area who feels that I am guilty of an injustice to a particular literature leave a comment and I’ll be sure to address it. If you’re a non-wonk who has no idea what I’m on about leave a comment and I’ll do my best to clarify.
