Research Projects
Lead author on the Queensland Premier's Department History Project which received funding of $225,000 following a competitive tendering process in 1999. The team of Dr Joanne Scott, Professor Patrick Weller, Dr Ross Laurie and Ms Bronwyn Stevens completed the project on time and on budget with the publication of The Engine Room of Government: The Queensland Premier's Department 1859-2001 (St Lucia, University of Queensland Press, 2001).
Significant Contributions to this research
As lead author on The Engine Room of Government (St Lucia: UQP, 2001), I played a key role in the research and writing of the first major published study of a central (as opposed to a line) agency in Australia; this book has attracted favourable reviews and is a significant contribution to the disciplines of political science and history.

My major contributions to labour history derive from my research on voluntary work and my publications on the 1930s Depression, which included involvement in a published debate on experiences of the Depression
