Assistant Professor, Faculty of Law, Bond University
Building from my early study of sport-related concussion in 2011 and my PhD thesis, Why the Brain Matters: Regulating Concussion in Sport (Monash, 2019), my research interests are primarily focused on the interface of sport, regulation and law. I have a particular interest in the framing of interdisciplinary research projects on sport-related concussion.
As an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Law, I teach Global Sports Law & Governance, Sports Law and Contemporary Issues in Law and Society. I am the General Editor of the Sports Law eJournal and Co-Director of the Centre for Commercial Law.
My legal practice career involved senior management roles at Corrs Chambers Westgarth and Greenhow and Associates. I maintain my practising certificate and have held memberships at the Queensland Law Society, Law Institute of Victoria and the Australian and New Zealand Sports Law Association.
