I am Professor of Law and Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Law at Bond University. My research spans the fields of legal philosophy, ethics and public law. I am interested in the ways in which ethical norms and relations are embodied in social practices and how these practices, in turn, provide the normative basis for legal and social institutions.
I am a founding co-director with Rachael Burgin and Saxon Mullins of Rape and Sexual Assault Research and Advocacy, an Australia-wide organisation working to shape responses to sexual violence. I co-edit the Journal of Legal Philosophy with Raff Donelson and Hillary Nye.
