PhD Public Policy


Dr Colette Einfeld is a Postdoctoral Fellow at College of Asia and the Pacific. Her research broadly explores knowledge, evidence and ethics in policy making. She focusses on how different types of knowledge are reflected on and used by policy actors in the design and implementation of policy. She is also interested in the role of evidence-based policy making and how ethics are negotiated in approaches such as nudge and co-design. She is increasingly focussed on how different epistemologies are considered in policy making in the Global South. She has also researched community engagement and the social licence to operate in energy and infrastructure projects.

Colette completed her PhD on nudging and behavioural insights in public policy at the Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU. Previously she worked as a Research Fellow at the Melbourne School of Government at the University of Melbourne. Colette brings to her academic work over ten years of experience working in applied research with businesses, governments, and not-for profit organisations. She led large scale qualitative and quantitative projects in the areas of media, health and welfare, finance, and energy and sustainability.
