Researching confluences of discourses, spaces and media practices on the eastern rim of the Indian Ocean, my work has been published in a wide range of academic journals. Books include To the Beach: Community Conservation and its Role in 'Sustainable Development' (2015) and - with Shaphan Cox - Setting up the Nyoongar Tent Embassy: A Report on Perth Media (2013). I was lead editor for Urban Studies: Border and Mobility (2019) and Indian Ocean Futures: Communities, Sustainability and Security (2016), and a guest editor for Coolabah journal’s Reimagining Australia editions (2018).

Before entering academia, I led a successful media startup in Southeast Asia after working as a journalist and editor in The Hague and Jakarta.
