Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on the interaction of sport, law, regulation and governance.  I have a particular interest in the regulation of sport-related concussion.    I am also interested in the topics of diversity, equity and inclusion in sport, the duty of care in sport and the emerging challenges associated with the regulation and governance of eSports. 

My PhD 'Why the Brain Matters: Regulating Concussion in Australian Sport" examined the regulatory and legal frameworks around sport-related concussion and evaluated the effectiveness of current regulatory approaches in Australian sport.  Expert supervision by Emertus Professor Arie Freiberg and Professor Christine Parker enabled me to adopt a broader regulatory approach to the issue, drawing from a range of displinary perspectives.

In addition to being the first Australian legal academic to publish in the area in 2011, my recent publications include book chapters and peer-reviewed journal articles on the regulatory, governance and ethical perspectives in respect of sport-related concussion.  

I am currently working on two international research projects.  The first involves a Canadian interdisciplinary research project on youth concussion.  The second collaboration undertakes a cross-jurisdictional review of government regulatory responses in several jurisdictions.

I am admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland, a member of the Queensland Law Society and an Associate Member of the Law Institute of Victoria.

I am the General Editor of the Sports Law eJournal. I am co-director of the Centre for Commercial Law, a member of the Centre for Professional Legal Education and a member of the Faculty of Law's Research Management Group.    

As co-convenor of the Interdisciplinary Colloquium on Sport since 2015, I have been instrumental in designing informative and relevant research programs that aim to translate research to practice across a range of contemporary sport-related topics. 


Statement for HDR students

I am available to supervise HDR students in the areas of Sports Law, Regulatory Theory, Regulation and Contemporary Issues in Law and Society.

My research philosophy is aligned with translating research outcomes in a real and practical sense.  In that regard, I encourage HDR students to identify publically-stated commitments by governments and other actors that support and sustain research projects and create opportunities for impact and engagement.
