I am Aboriginal law academic who comes from the Palyku people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. As the Indigenous Advisor at the Law School of the University of Western Australia, I am responsible for mentoring Indigenous law students and for transforming law teaching and research spaces to be respectful and inclusive of Indigenous peoples, cultures and knowledges. I am also an award winning writer and illustrator and a commentator on diversity in Australian children's literature.
LLB (Hons) University of Western Australia
I have a broad range of research interests, reflecting my diverse background and areas of expertise. These interests include public law and all aspects of Indigenous interactions with Western legal actors and institutions, including across the areas of environmental law, Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property, and Indigenous legal systems. I also have expertise in ethical protocols relating to working with Indigenous peoples across the areas of research, Indigenous engagement, and the Arts.
