I am Associate Professor at Bond University, Australia and Co-Director of the Global and Comparative Law and Policy Network (www.bond.edu.au/gclp). I have expertise in Constitutional Law, Public International Law (including Space Law), and Transnational Crime. I have a Master of Laws from the University of Cambridge (Chevening Scholar), and a PhD from the University of Queensland. I was admitted as a Legal Practitioner in the Supreme Court of NSW in 2005.
I am the author of 'Accountability in Extraterritoriality: A Comparative and International Law Perspective' (Edward Elgar, 2017), and co-editor of 'Global Governance and Regulation: Order/Disorder in the 21st Century' (Routledge, 2018). I have published a number of book chapters and articles in peer-reviewed journals.
I previously held policy and legal roles in the private sector and in both state and federal government. For example, I served as Policy Advisor and Parliamentary Liaison Officer in the NSW Office of Premier and Cabinet between 2006 – 2008, and was a Senior Legal Officer in the International Crime Cooperation Division of the Australian Attorney-General’s Department (2008-2010), where I worked on issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region. I also practiced law, including employment law, and in 2004-2005, worked as a legal officer in the QLD Crime and Misconduct Commission. In 2002-2003, I was Associate to the (now) Hon. Chief Justice Susan Kiefel.
