Biography

My research bridges the fields of human geography and cultural anthropology, addressing questions of how knowledge practices - Indigenous, settler and otherwise - are mobilised and transformed in relation to environments. My doctoral project, for example, focused on the Wild Rivers Act 2005 (Qld), examining how questions of belonging, sustainability and development were articulated through the controversial law in far north Queensland. Since then, I have been engaged in a major funded research project examining practices of measuring, modeling and mitigating bushfire and flood risk. My present research focuses are settler-indigenous politics, the anthropology of natural hazards and environmental governance, and environmentalism.

I am interested in supervising postgraduate projects related to these areas. More information on my publications is available on academia and on my website.
