Research Expertise


Andreas has researched and published widely on the topic of welfare activation, including the meta-analysis of welfare-to-work programs in the US and reform programs targeting lone parents and people with disability in the UK. Besides welfare policy, he has studied the sociology of risk, conducting studies examining the validity of Giddens's and Beck's theories, with a focus on young people and generational change. 

His empirical work has extended into disability (including the evaluation of Australia's National Disability Insurance Scheme, and NDIS workforce needs assessments) and ageing, where he has focussed on human resource and workplace policies for extended working lives. Andreas has also conducted research for practitioners on social enterprise, procurement and social value, and explored housing preferences of older renters in Australia as part of an AHURI research network. 

Andreas conducts both qualitative and quantitative research. 

His latest publications includes an edited volume on "The Future of Work and Technology in Australia".
