Having worked for eight years investigating financial markets and big business for Rupert Murdoch’s The Australian and another eight years for The Age and Sydney Morning Herald at Fairfax Media, West has established michaelwest.com.au to focus on journalism of high public interest. Michael is a Walkley-award winning journalist and his main areas of focus are energy/climate, multinational tax avoidance, and how big business intersects with government.

The role is to work with the School’s Sydney Democracy Network, investigating money in politics, corporate influence and the intersection between government and big business.
