Sessional Academic, University of South Australia

I am interested in technology regulation, and autonomous machines and decision-making systems.

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.
