I’m currently Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Munsie Lab within the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne. I research medical law and the social science and history of innovative health technologies, including cellular therapies and psychiatric experiments. My PhD used literatures of mental alterity and mind disorder to examine the politics of psychiatry and the emergence of molecular psychiatry in the late twentieth century.
In 2018, I conducted a major review of the scope of disciplinary powers exercisable by the NSW medical regulator under the relevant health practitioner law. I have also published original research on the the history and politics of novel psychiatric devices, including the e-meter and telepsychiatric devices. I have also published work on the legal frameworks regulating stem cell interventions in Australia and internationally.
I am managing editor and manuscript producer of Philament Journal, and manuscript producer of the Australasian Journal of American Studies.
