Personal profile

Biography

I joined both the Discipline of History in the School of Humanities and the School of Indigenous Studies in January 2014.

My research interests largely concern histories of cross-cultural encounters in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Australia, the history of European, particularly French, exploration in Australia and the Pacific, European and colonial representations of Aboriginal people and gender relations, Indigenous biography and emotions.

I am of Aboriginal descent and identify with the Yawuru people of Broome, Western Australia.
