Prior to joining The University of Sydney in 2016, Steven was a Graduate Associate at The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication at Arizona State University where he received his PhD in Organizational Communication. Steven has a Bachelor of Communication Studies with First Class Honors in Public Relations and Media Studies, from the University of Waikato. Steven also has a Master of Management Studies with First Class Honors, in Management Communication from The University of Waikato.

Steven’s primary stream of research examines the discourse of, and practice surrounding, aged and generational narratives in the workplace. Steven is particularly interested in the perspectives of young professionals whose voices often go unattended in organizations, the popular press, and in scholarship.

Steven’s second stream of research focusses on engagement in undergraduate education. Steven has a particular interest in processes of unit development via the likes of innovative teaching practice, and narrative-based instruction.
