John Taylor, Visiting Fellow

BA (Hons), University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
PhD (Geography), University of Liverpool

Professor John Taylor's disciplinary background is in geography and population studies. From 1976 to 1986 he held various University research and teaching positions in Botswana and Nigeria before joining the ANU's North Australia Research Unit in Darwin. He was appointed to the Center for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research at the ANU in Canberra in 1991. John was Director of CAEPR from April 2010 to March 2013.

In Australia, John's research interests have revolved around the measurement of demographic change among Indigenous peoples and assessment of their economic status at varying scales of analysis from the local to the regional and national. Increasingly, this also incorporates international comparison with North America and New Zealand, particularly in terms of demographic analysis. A basic tenet of his research is the need to establish key parameters of population change as the basis for evaluating policy impacts in areas such as employment, housing, education and health. He has published widely on these issues and is the author of numerous consultancy reports for government, industry and Indigenous organisation.
