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 (later published in my book Wild Articulations), examined how questions of belonging, environmental sustainability and development were articulated through a legal controversy in far north Queensland. Since then, I have been engaged in a major funded research projects examining practices of measuring, modeling and mitigating natural hazards and their risks. My present research focuses are settler-indigenous politics, natural hazards management, and carbon and environmental governance.

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