Current and future research projects

Current project of relevance is the Pilot Evaluation Strategy for the Mates Apprentices Intervention Program. I have some work planned with some colleagues on FIFO mining workers so will update you when this looks like it will go ahead (but not looking for project partners or HDRs as yet).
