Peter is a CSU Research Fellow focused on evidence that supports effective public policy and communication strategies. His research interests span interpersonal and organisational communication.
In recent years he has led teams of researchers gathering evidence of community attitudes to support public policy on matters such as shark management and road user coexistence. Increasingly his team uses methods such as experimental vignettes and qualitative social media analysis that help to engage with variations in context.
He has presented his research and findings in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. He was the first Australian to receive a Havelange Research Scholarship from FIFA.
Peter has worked on teaching teams designing and delivering in-house training to strategic communication staff in some of Australia's leading organisations including the Australian Defence Forces, Australian Tax Office, Australian Mutual Provident and the Australian Human Rights Commission.
