Dr Mark Fabian is Senior Lecturer and Deputy Director at the Institute for Social Change, University of Tasmania. He was previously a postdoctoral research fellow at the Bennett Institute for Public Policy, and a Fulbright Scholar at the Brookings Institution in Washington DC.
He continues to work with colleagues at the Bennett Institute on themes relating to wellbeing public policy.
