Peter Gahan is a Research Associate at the Centre for Workplace Leadership and Professor of Management at the University of Melbourne. He was previously Director of the Centre for Workplace Leadership from its foundation in 2012 to 2016.
He has previously held academic and visiting positions at UNSW, Monash, University of South California, The European University Institute, Cardiff Business School, New York University and Stockholm Business School.
Peter has published widely on high performance workplaces, employment relations and labour market issues, conflict and bargaining, and the consequences of labour market regulation.
His current research focuses on two major drivers of change at work: workforce ageing and how technology is transforming the nature of jobs. Peter is currently exploring how older works are perceived by others (co-workers, managers and customers) in the workplace and how these perceptions influence hiring decisions, promotion and performance evaluations.
