Senior Research Officer

Liam joined the Social Policy and Research Centre in April 2021.

He has a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the University of Melbourne.

Liam’s previous experience in the not-for-profit sector has focused on refugee rights and the youth justice system. More recently he has worked as an academic researcher at La Trobe and Deakin Universities, contributing to projects spanning online misinformation, gender equality in politics and political sociology.

At BSL, with the Inclusive Communities team, Liam has investigated the availability and accessibility of supports for people with disability who are ineligible for NDIS funding, as well as platform-mediated 'gig' work in support services. 

In May 2022 he moved to the Youth Opportunity team, where his work focuses on Tasmania's employment and skills and training sectors.
