Michael has a background in Law, International Development and Agriculture. He has worked with the United Nations in Timor-Leste as a Civic Educator and as an Electoral Adviser to the National Electoral Commission (CNE). He has also done development work in Sri Lanka and Cambodia. Previously, he was a Lecturer in the School of Law at Queensland University of Technology, at the University of Southern Queensland and at Southern Cross University. Prior to that he was a Solicitor in both public and private practice.

Michael’s work focuses on the rebuilding of legal infrastructure in post-conflict situations and on the electoral process as a state building mechanism. His doctoral work with Dr Jeremy Farrall in the Asia Pacific College of Diplomacy looks at models of participatory democratisation in UN peace-building as a contribution to the establishment of sustainable democratic governance in post-conflict situations.
