Personal profile


NZ and US-trained barrister and solicitor, admitted in NZ and Western Australia, with professional experience in East Africa. Currently researching Commonwealth judicial systems at the University of Western Australia.

My early career was in central government, with a focus on complex litigation, judiciaries, regulatory investigation and enforcement, legislative drafting, rule of law development, and access to justice. Immediately prior to commencing my PhD in 2019, I was serving as a criminal magistrate in the Seychelles and coordinating the Seychelles Legal Information Institute.

I have lectured and tutored law at undergraduate and graduate level in NZ, Seychelles and most recently in Australia.
