About Mumble

My name is Peter Brent and this site predominately deals with electoral behaviour.

It's taken several years to finally construct this page.

I'm currently working on a PhD at ANU and so have lived in Canberra since 2004, but Mumble predates this. I also write from time to time for a few organs and am involved with the Democratic Audit of Australia.

[Apr 2007 update: I recently wrote this bio for a publication:

Peter's preoccupation with voting behaviour comes from: a brain wired towards mathematics, a strong interest in politics; and a sullen disposition to ponder human behaviour.

In previous professional lives he has dabbled in database design, professional role-playing, speech-writing, market research, music, taxi-driving and web-mastery.

And this is a website for my PhD.

Mumble is not a well organised site, and the links at left are long overdue for updating, but with the Google search engine top left you can find, for better or for worse, all my postings - including of course the more embarrassing, silly and/or badly written ones. 

While I don't go for pseudo even-handedness, and my mild political tendencies are often discernible, Mumble's limited scope luckily precludes wide-ranging opinion-giving. 

Apart from a couple of links to articles published elsewhere, you generally won't get my views on anything unrelated to electoral behaviour (and electoral law, which I'm learning more about). But of course there is lots of 'me' in these pages.

All emails welcomed and treated with appropriate discretion.

I plan to construct a reader-friendly federal pendulum for the 2007 election, like that for 2004, but this will be time-permitting. [Update: looking unlikely.] I'll also add to this page from time to time.

PB October 2006 [last update June 1 2007].
