Law Lecturer, University of Waikato

I am a Law Lecturer at Te Piringa Faculty of Law, University of Waikato. I hold a Bachelor of Laws with Honours and a Bachelor of International Relations from Griffith University, and a PhD in law from the University of Waikato. Prior to academia, I practised as a solicitor at a leading international law firm in Australia. My research focuses on the values which underpin environmental legal regimes, particularly in relation to freshwater. I have a strong interest in interdisciplinary work, and I regularly draw on social science and humanities theories to inform my legal analysis.
