Academic, Deakin University

I am a legal researcher and academic, and a legal and social policy professional with experience in a wide range of areas, including: family violence and vulnerable children, justice, multicultural and Aboriginal affairs and health. In 2017 I was a national finalist for the Westpac Future Leaders Scholarship for my research on child rights in Australia and in 2015 was twice nominated as a finalist for the Law Student of the Year Award (Australian Law Awards and Women in Law Awards).

I have a strong passion for social justice, legal research and affecting just outcomes within the community.
