I bring my background as a property law solicitor to my academic practice, where my principal research interests are property law and legal education. I am interested in the individualistic conception of property rights, and the ways in which this fails to reflect the needs of contemporary society.

My work in legal education focuses on curriculum development, including projects on flexible learning, embedding Indigenous perspectives, and sustainability. I am presently building on my early work on flexible learning to develop a framework within which to understand digital literacies in the context of the learning and practice of law.

Both my research in property law and in legal education are informed by my interest in gender, Indigenous perspectives, digital literacies, sustainability and critical theories.

  • LA4030: Mining and Resources Law and Governance (Level 4; TSV)
  • My research aims to develop a ‘conceptual antidote’ to the dominant individualistic framework of property at law. I also research in legal education, particularly in terms of teaching within the 'broader contexts' of the law.
  • I teach mining and resources law and governance, through a socio-legal lens.
