Current research: I completed my PhD in Environmental Humanities at the University of New South Wales in early 2021. My doctoral research explored theories of interstitiality through bringing them into conversation with the mangrove communities of Sydney’s Cooks and Georges River. I am now building upon the foundations established through this work, in particular through investigating the implications and affordances of semiotic material approaches to a range of concerns, including relationality, criteria, and temporal, spatial and conceptual scale. Previous Research: Previous research interests include: Open Educational Practice, experiential learning, conceptualisations of cultural identity in Australian political debate, theories of sustainability, and writing VCE English text guides. Current teaching: I lecture in the enabling programs at the University of Southern Queensland. Previous teaching: I have many years of teaching experience, including the Bachelor of Environments at The University of Melbourne, the Diploma of Liberal Arts at Victoria University and Kangan Institute, the Victorian Certificate of Education (year 11 and 12 English) and Indigenous programs at Kangan Institute and Deakin University.
