Lecturer in Health Law, University of New England

I am a Chancellor's Research Fellow in the Law Health Justice Research Centre, Faculty of Law, UTS. My PhD from UTS was on the impact of neurological research and culture on the legal regulation of medical intervention on minors to assign or reassign sex categories. This topic encompasses a range of related issues. These are; legal definitions of sex, consent to special medical procedures on children, the connections between law and neuroscience discoveries, and legal and medical responses to intersex.
I am an expert on law as it impacts on intersex communities, law and gender, and health law more generally. I teach Contract Law and Medicine and Law in the LLB programme.
I am Chair of Intersex Human Rights Australia; a member of the LGBTIQ+ Committee of Australian Lawyers for Human Rights; and a National Director of Pride in Law.
