Associate Lecturer, Macquarie University

I am a Gamilaroi woman from Western NSW and have been grown up on Dhawaral Country in south-west Sydney. From a critical Aboriginal perspective, my teaching and research critiques dominant practices in education and offers counter-narratives to advocate for emancipatory change in education for Indigenous students. This includes looking closely at teacher ontology and teacher education; culturally responsive schooling practices; school-community relationships; and inclusion of Indigenous perspectives in teaching and learning. My PhD research focuses on Indigenous education sovereignty - envisioning an educational future outside of colonial-controlled schooling, centred in Indigenous axiologies, ontologies and epistemologies.
