Brief Biography

Professor Kelly is an alum of Deakin University, having completed his undergraduate degrees and PhD with the then Faculty of Education. He also recently held the position of Principal Research Fellow in Social Science with the Alfred Deakin Research Institute, where he was Lead CI on an ARC Linkage Project, Capacity Building and Social Enterprise: Individual and Organisational Transformation in Transitional Labour Market Programs, in collaboration with Mission Australia. Professor Kelly is a prolific author, with four scholarly books published over the past five years. He also has an extensive catalogue of published journal articles, including a number from the highly rated Journal of Youth Studies (Taylor and Francis/Routledge).

Professor Kelly has an extensive research background in youth studies and an ongoing research interest in the ways in which youth transitions - and the family, employment, study and peer relationships shaped by these processes of transition - are being remade by the emergence of a globalised knowledge economy. He is also involved in a research program exploring the emergence of new work identities, obligations, and responsibilities in a globalised risk economy, and the ways these concerns find expression in various concerns for professionalisation, work-life balance, work related stress, and the idea that the self should imagine itself as an enterprise.
