Lecturer, University of Western Australia Business School

Research focus: Governance and performance of superannuation funds

Going into my PhD, I knew that I wanted to work on a research topic that not only contributed to the academic literature but also had practical relevance and implications. Monash Business School has a strong reputation and maintains valuable ties with industry parties. The major advantage of the program was the access to experienced and successful researchers in my field.

My PhD experience would not have been as rewarding without the support and guidance of my three supervisors. My supervisors allowed me to my own approach but were also always there when I needed guidance. They also gave me a fantastic model to follow for my future collaborations, in terms of how researchers from different backgrounds can work together effectively.
