Sessional Academic, University of South Australia

I am interested in technology policy, in particular the intersection of technology, law, and public policy.

I have worked across ICT and legal practice roles, and taught a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate subjects across IT, law, and management. I also have experience teaching in high schools, and working in a variety of hospitality and customer service roles.

I am looking for a PhD or SJD program that will enable me to address some of the implications of recent developments at the intersection of public policy, law, and information systems/information technologies. I am particularly interested in the balance between privacy and security; and the implications of policy, law, and technologies on individual identities, and on authentication and identification processes.

I hold Honours degrees in science and law, and have previous postgraduate experience in computer science, law, and education. I have also undertaken studies in business at a TAFE.
