As an historian with significant professional experience and expertise in the human rights field, my research has a strong focus on applied research with ‘real-world’ applications. An important aspect of my research output over the past decade has been my work on a number of industry reports and publications on significant public policy issues, including exploring barriers to and enablers of community truth-telling in Australia, the need for a National Resting Place for the care of Indigenous Ancestral Remains, media studies focusing on both gender and the representation of Aboriginal political issues, women’s access to tertiary education and employment in Afghanistan, gender and fishing in Solomon Islands, and two national studies contributing to human rights policy and practice, one in Australia and one in the UK. My book Stolen Motherhood: Aboriginal Mothers and Child Removal in the Stolen Generations Era, was published in 2021. I am an Associate of the Australian Human Rights Institute, and an Honorary Industry / Professional Fellow of the Centre for the Advancement of Indigenous Knowledges, University of Technology Sydney.
