Lecturer, Faculty of Education and Arts, Australian Catholic University

My research focuses on young children's experience in contemporary society, with a particular emphasis on re-conceptualising children's relations in and with space, time and more-than-human worlds. My work is cross-disciplinary and situated at the intersection of philosophy, critical geographies and childhood studies.

Specific research expertise includes: children and new technologies; surveillance and security; policy, regulation and risk in children's spaces (home and education settings); and, environmental education with an emphasis on understanding the responsibilities and values needed to nurture and sustain a world we share with others.

I am a member of the Common Worlds Research Collective (commonworlds.net) an interdisciplinary network of researchers concerned with children's relations with the more-than-human world.
