I am an Associate Professor and A-rated researcher at Auckland University in New Zealand.* I research the relationship between politicians, government and public opinion, mainly through the field of political marketing, but more recently leadership, considering how public input through different forms (market research, consultation and deliberation) can be integrated into political leadership.
I aim to break new ground in these areas, but also, and very importantly, support the work of other scholars through research organisation, nurturing leadership, resource and contributions to the profession. I also aim to transfer knowledge and offer short courses in political marketing whilst embedding transferrable skills and applied work in my teaching. I can be contacted at email@example.com
NZ Oz PM & M 2013 Call for papers for Political Marketing and Management Conference to be held at at Auckland on 31 August 2013.
Initial research report from the project Integrating public input into political leadership as well as details of an academic practitioner workshop and post-event report are available.
*‘A’ rated means that between 2006 and 2012 the researcher produced research outputs of a world-class standard, established high levels of peer esteem and made significant contributions to the research environment. Detailed score was 98% (685/700): 7/7/6 (7 for research outputs, 7 for peer esteem; 6 for contribution to the research environment). 7 is the highest possible score. Associate Professor is part of the professoriate at Auckland, considered equivalent to US Professor.
