I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet), an interdisciplinary research center housed at the Australian National University, where I also serve as Head of Postgraduate Programs.
My research interests, broadly conceived, are concerned with issues of justice in relation to the development and deployment of technologies of governance. Much of my work examines intersections between regulatory technologies and inequality, with an empirical focus on how they affect populations differently. My areas of expertise are law and society, deviance, feminist and social theory, health, science and technology studies, and qualitative methods.
In this role as RegNet’s Head of Postgraduate Programs, I oversee research training programs in the areas of governance and regulation, which are built on RegNet’s principles of justice, sustainability, and wellbeing.
I am actively involved in cultivating and promoting critical ethnographic approaches to the study of law and regulation. In addition to being a founding member of the Law and Society Association (LSA) Collaborative Research Network on Ethnography, Law & Society, I am the Associate Editor of the Political and Legal Anthropology Review, a journal that publishes innovative ethnographic research on law and politics.
