About me

I am a policy analyst, visual communicator and higher education researcher with an interest in technology, diversity, information and knowledge creation. I am passionate about the well being and success of students in higher education, and ways that knowledge can be translated into evidence-based tools, policy and techniques to enhance their well-being and success both at university and long after graduation.

I occasionally write and contribute to Policy Attitudes via the Medium and Twitter (@PolicyAttitudes). You can also find me on Twitter (@harryrofl).
