I am a senior consultant and lecturer, specialising in space law and space policy at the Australian National University College of Law. I am a Mission Specialist with the ANU Institute for Space, providing space law, policy and security expertise to space research and technology development at the ANU. I have over 13 years’ professional experience in academia and strategic direction of research centres and NGOs. I was a Senior Lecturer at the Universiteit van Amsterdam, where I taught and researched comparative criminal law and international criminal law. From 2015-2017 I was Executive Director of the McGill Institute for Air and Space Law, and was concurrently Executive Director of Women in International Security-Canada. In 2018 I was Acting Executive Director of the University of Pennsylvania Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law, where I organized and facilitated a high level national roundtable on space security and space weaponization. I have consulted to the Australian, Canadian and US departments of defence on space law and space security, and published widely on these issues. In 2020 I relocated to Australia to continue my specialisation in space law and governance.
