Research interests / activities:

My PhD research focused on exploring ideologies of nature. I critically analysed the way nature is represented in specific social /historical configurations . I also looked at nature as it is ideologically positioned in market based neoliberal capitalism , including its commodification /utilitarian value set. I have extended this analysis to critically analyse the objectification, commodification and utilitarian value set that nonhuman animals are subject to under capitalism. I am a vegan animal rights activist. I founded Starfish Bobby Calf Project in New Zealand and actively campaign against the dairy industry.

I have published academic journal articles on vegan animal rights activism – specifically concerning the dairy industry. I have also published on environmental themes as my PhD was by publication. I publish regular opinion pieces for online and paper versions of news – I have a scoop page but also publish on other platforms. Most of my opinion pieces cover animal rights issues. https://info.scoop.co.nz/Starfish_Bobby_Calf_Project I also have presented regularly at conferences about animal rights. I presented at the Dear Dairy: The True Cost of Milk Symposium hosted by the New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies (NZCHAS) in July , 2017 I also presented at the 2019 conference of the Australasian Animal Studies Association in Christchurch , New Zealand.The title of my presentation was ‘’til the cows come home: the cow as a colonial subject in Aotearoa/NewZealand’.
