I am a Human Geographer, PhD candidate, Sessional Lecturer and Tutor in the Environment and Society Group at the University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia. I completed a Master of Environmental Management with research into Water Sensitive Urban Design in southern Sydney. Drawing on urban political ecology and environmental history my work seeks to understand how waters are known, placed and heard. Through my work, I explore the relationships between water, sound, urban design, knowledges, and justice across metropolitan Sydney.
I have a strong focus on urban water and so am interested in flooding in cities, in particular those that have emerged through settler-colonial projects. I see my work at being at the intersection of urban geography, environmental history, urban design, disaster studies and settler-colonial studies. Across all of these is the ever present lens of 'water'.
