Personal profile

Research interests

Intellectual property is my principal area of interest. I have focussed on IP and innovation issues, most recently in relation to trade secrets law and employee mobility.

My current research is more related to IP and goodwill, in particular trademarks law and the law of geographical indications of origin. I focus on policy issues and the relationship between IP law and Competition. I am also interested in comparative law, since I have a background in the civilian legal system.

I have recently completed a Report on GIs in Australia, and am currently concerned with competition and bargaining issues in the agrifood sector in Australia.

I am also active in the debate concerning the internationalisation of legal education and have published a number of chapter books on this topic with my colleague Prof Mary Hiscock.

Statement for HDR students

I have supervised a number of PhD candidates over the years, mostly in the area of Intellectual property law, focussing on various policy issues.

My current interests lie in innovation policy, competition policy and comparative law. I have also supervised in the area of Evidence law and criminal procedure.
