Visiting Fellow, The Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University

I recently joined The Northern Institute of Charles Darwin University as a Visiting Fellow to work on issues around evaluation in the Northern Australian context.

I have been with the Australian Institute of Criminology for around eight years. My main research interests are justice issues for Indigenous Australians and corrections. Much of my recent work has centre on these two themes and has included evaluation of a diverse range of programs.

My previous work at the AIC has included research into the homelessness experiences of ex-prisoners, Commonwealth sentencing and bushfire arson.

Before the AIC, I gained experience in operational support of corrections with ACT Corrective Services and in the managing the sentences of Federal prisoners with the Attorney General's Department.

I have Masters level qualifications in Criminology and Correctional Management.
