Associate Professor Jason Potts' expertise lies in the study of economic dynamics, particularly in relation to the causes and consequences of innovation.
This expertise enabled him to contribute significantly to the work of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation at the Queensland University of Technology prior to coming to RMIT. Jason has published his research outputs in numerous books and book chapters and also in many national and international refereed journals. He is also Editor or Associate Editor for a number of Economics journals and is an ARC expert reviewer.
Jason was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellowship in 2011. Based in the School of Economics, Finance and Marketing, his research has a cross–disciplinary focus examining the role of creative industries in the three phases of an innovation trajectory: origination, adoption and retention will provide many opportunities for collaborative research across the University, through the integration of evolutionary and complexity-based economic analysis.
