Research interests / activities

My research examines discourse, law and public policy, and political activism, in relation to issues of social and criminal justice. I have a particular interest in how Foucault’s tools can be utilised to expand understandings of human-animal dynamics and governance. I have recently been published in the Journal of Agriculture and Human Values discussing the problematisation of ‘food security’ in live export debates and its effects on the governance of food and animals, and I am currently working on a research project examining language of lab-grown protein stakeholders.
