Lecturer in Law

Research interests / activities:

I teach Equity and Trusts in CQUniversity’s undergraduate law program.

My research centres on animal protection law, framed in terms of human obligations to other species and the environment.

I aim to apply theoretical and methodological approaches that provide insight into the complexities inherent in the role of law as it relates to non-human species, and to use these insights to influence law and policy reform, practice, and regulatory frameworks.

My work is informed by critical criminal law, Pierre Bourdieu, and anthropological theory and practice. I am currently undertaking research on wildlife protection law in Vietnam as part of a CQU new staff research grant.
