I am a policy advisor and academic with a background in law, human rights and sexuality. I have worked with NGOs, United Nations bodies, the corporate sector and community organisations. During this time I have focused upon LGBTI rights, criminal law, sexual and reproductive health, HIV prevention, anti-discrimination and gendered violence. I have taught in undergraduate courses on criminology, sociology, gender studies, politics, social sciences and sexology.
My research experience includes two major ethnographic projects including qualitative interviews and legal review as part of my PhD at UNSW and Master of Arts at USYD; working as a Research Assistant in the Law Faculties at both USYD (on gender inequities in health) and UTS (on sexuality in asylum determination) as well as in Social Sciences at UNSW (on animal law reform); and as a Research Officer for the Centre for Social Research in Health conducting focus groups to develop indicators to measure stigma.
