I am Professor and Director of RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University.

As an interdisciplinary scholar interested in biogovernance, I study how science and technology contribute to the governance of persons and populations. My research examines intersections between inequality, social control, and technoscience in everyday life. Many of my publications focus on topics related to biometric surveillance, human enhancement and well-being, regulatory science, and technologies of policing; they also include work on criminological knowledge production, sex/gender and science, and the governance of social welfare. My teaching reflects this range: I have taught courses on crime and deviance, gender studies, law and regulation, popular culture, social theory, and surveillance.
