Amy researches the development and impact of asylum policies in Australia and Asia, with a focus on transnational cooperation on border control. An important theme of her work is the analysis of asylum policy according to democratic norms of policymaking. She has a particular interest in immigration detention: its history, evolution, diffusion, legal status, consistency with democratic norms, and human impact.

Amy's units teach students to become engaged, informed, and critical citizens, and to provide them with the skills to make an impact in their lifetime.
Her units are designed to educate students in the importance of strong democratic systems of governance and the foundations of good policy.
Recognising a critical need to increase the pathways for women to pursue careers in politics, with colleague Maria Rae she established the Deakin Women in Politics Network.
