Luke Craven is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Public Service Research Group at the University of New South Wales, Canberra.
Luke’s key research interests are in the areas of public policy and management, with a particular focus on food, health, and environmental issues. Much of his work aims to develop conceptual and methodological tools to support the design, implementation and evaluation of systems approaches in the public sector. Luke’s current research examines how different public sector organisations adapt and apply systems frameworks to support the implementation of large-scale reform. He is also engaged in a number of collaborative projects to develop innovative, place-based approaches to address disadvantage, which includes work focused on health inequity, food insecurity, and vulnerability to climate change.
Luke recently submitted his PhD in Political Science at the University of Sydney, where he remains affiliated with the Sydney Environment Institute and the Charles Perkins Centre.
