Ian Marsh's research covers innovation in and through governmental structures. Currently, he has three major projects. One focuses on the potential form of regime change in Britain, Australia and New Zealand. This is in conjunction with Professor Raymond Miller at the University of Auckland. Another is a comparative study of innovation strategies in Ireland, Australia, Denmark and Sweden. This latter project is in conjunction with Professor Len Seabrook of the Copenhagen Business School. Other research activities include a review of joined-up government in Australia, an assessment of the role of parliamentary committees in facilitating interest engagement, and an evaluation of Australia's disability employment system.

Prior to joining the AIRC, Ian was a Professor in the Graduate School of Government, University of Sydney (2004-2007), and prior to that a Senior Fellow in the Politics Programme at the Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University (1999-2004).

Ian received his BA from the University of Newcastle, and later studied at Harvard (MPA, AM, PhD). He has visiting appointments at the European University Institute, Florence and Keio University, Tokyo. He is a Director of the NewDemocracy Foundation, and a Research Fellow with the Committee for the Economic Development of Australia.
