I'm a Queenslander at the ANU Law School working on constitutional law, human rights law, and the interaction of politics & law.

Before joining the ANU in mid-2013, I was Junior Research Fellow in Law at Lincoln College, University of Oxford; prior to that I studied at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar.

I've written and spoken in local and national media on a variety of constitutional law and public law issues, and on the interaction between law and politics. I'm affiliated with the Centre for Policy Development (CPD) and the TJ Ryan Foundation.

Please see my ANU Law School website for my full bio, qualifications, and details of my work.
