I am a doctoral candidate in the School of Critical Studies, Faculty of Education and Social Work, University of Auckland. Prior to focusing full-time on my PhD, I was a lecturer in secondary teacher education at Auckland University of Technology, where I taught philosophy of education. I am also an experienced Secondary teacher, having taught visual art for many years. Moved (in the sense of being affected and propelled into action; made mobile) by the slow, but also increasingly accelerated violence of the Anthropocene (as materialised by events like the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires, the Covid-19 pandemic and the Gulf Livestock 1 multi-species tragedy), my research explores ethical ways to think with/in the world at this moment in time.
