Associate Dean of Research and Associate Professor of Law, University of Canberra

I draw on regulatory legal experience in telecommunications, specifically, and networked industries, generally and work as a Barrister Sole in my academic work. I work in the Faculty of Business, Government and Law at the University of Canberra as an Associate Professor in Law and Associate Dean Research.

My research explores the nexus of business, accounting, government and law in relation to how regulation and governance support expropriation from the commons for the benefit of capital interest. Theorists that inform the work include Hardt & Negri, Lazzarato and Laclau & Mouffe. In particular, my research examines the interface of accounting, law, politics, regulation, and discourses of capital. My work is trans-disciplinary and concerns how information (including metrics, economics, accounting and statistics) is used within legal and political processes, which explores the interface of law and regulation within government, public policy, corporate, regulatory and litigation settings. Thus, my research focuses on three main pillars: the politics of information (in an ontological sense); the nature of governance and regulation; and the discourse of capital.
