Research interests / activities:

My PhD is by creative practice, in the English at UTAS. I am interested in Australia’s current, and historical, relationship with cats. Linked to this are questions around ferality and belonging. I have background in cultural geography and am also bringing my prior research on place into creative writing.


My debut novel, Bridget Crack, was published in 2017.
