Personal profile

Research interests

My areas of expertise and interests include public international law, space law, transnational criminal law, human rights law, and comparative constitutional law.

I am the author of the book 'Accountability in Extraterritoriality: A Comparative and  International Law Perspective' (Edward Elgar 2017)', Co-Editor of the book 'Global Governance and Regulation: Order and Disorder in the 21st Century' and Co-Editor of the 2018 Special Edition of the Bond Law Review themed 'Control and Power'.  In addition, I have published book chapters, and journal articles in peer-reviewed journals, including in the Federal Law Review, the Melbourne Journal of International Law and the Utrecht Law Review.  By invitation, I have presented my research internationally, including in India, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States.  I currently serve as Co-Director of the Global and Comparative Law and Policy Network.

In 2003, I was awarded a Chevening Scholarship to complete an LLM at the University of Cambridge. I was also appointed a Peguses Scholar during that period. I have a PhD from the University of Queensland, awarded in 2014.  I also have Bachelors degrees in both Law and International Relations. In 2018, I was awarded the Faculty of Law Award for Emerging Research Excellence.


Statement for HDR students

There are a number of areas in which I would be interested in supervising a HDR project. These include:

  • The efficacy and/or reform of the legal frameworks for international crime cooperation: including transnational crimes such as terrorism, human trafficking and people smuggling; and extradition and mutual assistance frameworks
  • Questions of public international law, particularly as relates to jurisdictional conflicts
  • Questions of both Australian and comparative constitutional law, particularly in relation to individual rights and the relationship between international law and domestic constitutionalism
  • Questions of international humanitarian law, also known as the laws of armed conflict and peacekeeping, particularly in relation to cyberwar, issues of gender equality, and the conduct of combatants in modern armed conflicts.
