I work as Campaign Manager of Humane Society International’s #BeCrueltyFree Australia campaign.
Coming from a political science / animal geography background, I am interested in anthrozoology, critical animal studies, and political ecology more generally. My professional background is in the area of animal testing, while my academic focus is on the representation of non-human animals in policy processes. I am interested in exploring less anthropocentric approaches to environmental and animal protection policy, in promoting effective animal advocacy, and in any opportunities to become more involved in these areas.
I hold an MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Governance from the University of Oxford. As part of the programme, I focused on animal geographies / critical animal studies, writing on the ethico-political considerations of rewilding; dairy, structural violence and posthumanist feminist theory; badger-advocate relations within the context of UK bTB badger control policies and conservation governance; and more-than-human conservation and animal welfare paradigms.
