Personal profile


I completed my BA (Hons) and PhD at The University of Western Australia and worked for the next decade at Murdoch University, mostly as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Asia Research Centre. My research sits at the juncture of maritime and environmental history, with a focus on Western Australia in regional and global contexts and a track-record of multi-disciplinary collaboration. I have worked both individually and in research teams on histories of fisheries, cyclones and extreme tropical weather, pearling industries and environmental conservation, written biographies, and undertaken commissioned projects in Western Australian history. I continue to work with researchers at the Asia Research Centre and further afield, in the United Kingdom, Singapore and India, and am a collaborator in the ‘Appraising Risk, Past and Present’ Partnership’ based at the Indian Ocean World Centre, McGill University.
