Personal profile

Research interests

I have researched broadly within the social sciences arena with special interests in Aboriginal crime and justice issues, miscarriages of justice and forensics, and the field of crime prevention. I have lectured at Bond since 1994, and at other universities in Queensland (UQ, QUT and Griffith). My research work has been conducted at UQ, QUT, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver and Rutgers University in New Jersey.

My involvement in research projects has included: runaway and homeless youth, violence in Aboriginal communities, fraud by medical practitioners, forensic interviewing techniques and wrongful convictions. I recently completed a study on the consequences of naming Indigenous youth involved in justice proceedings (with Professor Duncan Chappell from the University of Sydney) funded by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies.

Another federally-funded industry-partnered project concluded last year, and it examined violence against urban bus drivers utilising a multi-method framework, and we now are in touch with a global network of transport crime researchers.

I have experience in publishing as Senior Editor at Aboriginal Studies Press in Canberra and Managing Editor for two Australian social science journals. Some co-authored books include Justice in the Deep North, Jean Lee: The Last Woman Hanged in Australia, Crime on My Mind and Crime over Time; as well as journal publications on inequality and crime, DNA evidence, forensic interviewing, 'naming and shaming' and Indigenous injustice.

Overall a theme or thread that has underpinned my research interest is that of disadvantage, unfairness or impartiality in the justice system.

Statement for HDR students

I enjoy working with postgraduate students for it is inevitably a manifest learning process for me. It challenges me to offer ideas, contacts and links to my HDR students and in return they provide up-to-date knowledge about their emerging research enterprises.

I believe I can offer some special expertise in bringing out the best in student writing given my background in editing and publishing. It is clear that my research involvement has been almost exclusively in collaborative projects and this reflects my preference for the mutually beneficial sharing of information and the excitement of a reciprocal exchange of ideas.
