Welcome! I am a socio-legal scholar working at the intersections of criminal law, sexuality and justice. I live on Gadigal land of the Eora nation, also known by its colonial name of Sydney, Australia.
I am currently a Fellow at the Berkman Klein Centre for Internet and Society at Harvard University. Over the last fifteen years I have worked in policy, advocacy and research capacities for community organisations, NGOs, universities, law firms and United Nations bodies in Australia and internationally.
My doctoral research at the University of New South Wales explored queer, feminist and DIY pornographies in Australia as a socio-political movement and explored their regulation through criminal and classification laws. My forthcoming monograph Indie Porn explores resistance politics and precarious labour in gig economies. My current research interests include movement lawyering, anti-protest legislation and police powers.
My writing has been published in books such as New Feminist Literary Studies, Queer Sex Work, Navigating Fieldwork in the Social Sciences and Orienting Feminisms, and in journals such as the Journal of Sexual Health, World Journal of AIDS, Porn Studies, AG About Gender and Current Issues in Criminal Justice. I have written for outlets such as Overland, The Conversation, Archer, Runway and Hustler and have been featured in articles for Vice, BBC News, SBS, Sydney Morning Herald and 10 Daily.
I have taught in criminology, criminal law, social research, public policy and gender studies and am on the Editorial Board of international journal Porn Studies and a peer reviewer for Culture, Health and Sexuality.
