My professional practice as a geographer includes work in the fields of human rights, indigenous rights, environmental justice, sustainability and social theory. I have undertaken major social impact studies for various Aboriginal groups, and contributed to native title and mining negotiations in several areas. My current research focuses on the interfaces between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, considering the fragile geographies of coexistence, avenues for sustainable and just development in remote communities and the implications of relational concepts of geographical scale for our analysis of and responses to these situations.
I was first appointed to Macquarie in 1992, and previously worked at the University of Sydney, the Commonwealth Aboriginal Education Service and the NSW Department of Education as a primary school teacher. My teaching covers areas of cultural, social and environmental geography at undergraduate, honours, Masters and PhD levels.
