My approach to research supervision is to ensure that my students develop themselves as well-rounded academics, rather than simply finishing their theses. I actively encourage them to join professional associations as early in their studies as possible, to go to Summer schools and conferences, and to build up their own networks.
In my previous positions at the Universities of Bradford, Maastricht, and Tilburg, I supervised some 25 MA dissertations (minor theses), mostly in the area of international management and (international) HRM. In Bradford I started to supervise PhD students; this continues in Melbourne where I also supervise Masters by Research students.
