Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the impact of government decisions and their effect on individuals. I have a particular focus on administrative law and those institutions which review government decision-making (such as courts, tribunals and ombudsman).

Through my research I examine the 'broader contexts of law' and how to design effective, coherent and integrated oversight mechanisms. My research has a specific emphasis on tribunals, and this extends beyond administrative law and into sports law and other areas where tribunals are used to resolve disputes.

As a comparativist, I also seek to apply my research into other jurisdictions - to date this has included Pacific Island nations and Canada. 

As a Yuin woman, I have a deep personal commitment to research areas where the law impacts First Nations Peoples and to advocate for law reform.

Statement for HDR students

I am interested to offer supervision for HDR students in administrative law. Of specific interest is the impact of government decision-making and associated oversight mechanisms.

I would also be interested to discuss HDR topics in the broad field of public law.

Please note that I am available to act as a Primary Supervisor to LLM students, and as an Associate Supervisor to PhD students.
