I am a Senior Lecturer in the Law School, Faculty of Law, Humanities and Arts at the University of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.

I completed my BA (Hons) and LLB (Hons) at the University of Wollongong. After a (brief) stint in commercial law, I returned to UoW to complete my PhD in Literary Studies, exploring Jane Austen and masculinity.

I joined the Canberra Law School in 2009, teaching foundations of law, torts and gender and the legal system, and continuing my research on gender, law and literary studies. In February 2020 I took up my current position at the University of Wollongong.
