Dr Troy Heffernan Lecturer, Leadership and Learning, Education

Dr Troy Heffernan is Lecturer in Leadership at La Trobe University.

His research examines higher education administration and policy with a particular focus on investigating the inequities that persist in the sector. His work examines issues such as those related to precarious employment, the implication of academic networks, the factors involved in hiring and promotional decisions, and how universities define success for their staff in a neoliberal age. Dr Heffernan’s research objective is to support universities as their role in the community continues to grow, and help ensure that diverse and marginalised groups are represented and treated equitably throughout the sector.

His work has received numerous awards for research excellence, and he regularly participates in public and invited speaking engagements.
