Currently working in the Division of Research and Innovation as a Director, I maintain my work as a historian of health and medicine, especially mental health. I am a proud Humanities graduate of the University of Melbourne and of La Trobe University. Currently a member of the ARC's College of Experts, I am also a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia and a Fellow of the Royal Society of New South Wales, and a former Humanities panel member for the Royal Society of New Zealand's Marsden Fund. My book Vagrant Lives in Colonial Australasia 1840 to 1910 is published by Bloomsbury Academic in 2024.
