(She / Her)
Senior Research Fellow, Indigenous Land & Justice Research Group, UNSW Sydney

I work as a Senior Research Fellow in the Indigenous Land & Justice Research Group, School of Humanities and Languages, UNSW Sydney. My research sits at the intersection of human rights and history, centring on projects with a social impact which aim to deepen understanding of the legacy of the past in contemporary injustices, with a strong focus on 'real world' problems. My book Stolen Motherhood: Aboriginal Mothers and Child Removal in the Stolen Generations Era was published in May 2021.

I am an Associate of the Australian Human Rights Institute, and an Honorary Industry / Professional Fellow of the Centre for the Advancement of Indigenous Knowledges, University of Technology Sydney.
