I am currently a sessional researcher at Sydney Law School, where I work on the Sydney Neurolaw Project. Neurolaw is a field at the intersection of the neurosciences and law. Among other things, neurolaw examines the way in which expert neuroscience evidence is introduced into courtrooms, focusing on its reception under the civil and criminal law.

In late 2015, I worked with researchers both from University of Sydney and Macquarie University to launch the Australian Neurolaw Database.

Conferred in 2015, my PhD examined literary representations of psychosis and psychiatric models of mind disorder—what I call “psychotropes”—from the nineteenth century to the present. I hold bachelor’s degrees in Arts and Laws.

Part of my current research focuses on complex regional pain disorder (CRPS I and II), a largely invisible disorder whose existence is difficult to demonstrate at law.
