I am an entrepreneurial academic producing ground breaking applied research and teaching in politics and government.  As an A-rated researcher in the NZ PBRF (2012, estimated A for 2018), my research focuses on the relationship between politicians, government and public opinion, especially political marketing, management and leadership. In leadership I focus on supporting other scholars/events/initiatives, developing employability in teaching, and engaging with practice. Email me on j.lees-marshment@auckland.ac.nz.
