Justin is a PhD Candidate & Research Assistant where he specializes in neurodiversity-inclusive workplace practices, a topic that has garnered prominent interest from multi-national organizations across the globe (e.g. Microsoft, SAP, Hewlett-Packard, Ford Motor Company). Justin received his BA in Communications in the United States before establishing a career in the hospitality industry where he held a variety of leadership roles for various multi-national corporations. This included manager of consumer insights for an international restaurant-chain as well as consulting for one of the Big-Four advisory firms (Deloitte). He later completed his MBA and Graduate Diploma in Business Research Methods from UQ, where he was invited to take part in an autism employment research project for his postgraduate thesis. Using his diverse employment background, he, alongside his two academic supervisors, conducted the first qualitative study that examined how organizations can facilitate equitable and sustainable hiring practices (recruitment, selection, socialization) to be more inclusive of subgroups with neurological differences, leading to the development of the Neurodiversity Recruitment and Selection Framework.
