My research specialises in gender and sexual diversities with interests in social and political theory, queer theory and feminisms. My first book, Queer Post-Gender Ethics, was published in 2014 by Palgrave McMillan and received a special commendation for the Raewyn Connell Prize for the best first book in Australian Sociology. My second book, The Persistence of Global Masculinisms, co-authored with Dr Agius from Politics, was released in 2017. I am director of the Melbourne Queer, Feminist and Gender Studies Network. My PhD was awarded at University of Edinburgh where I worked before moving to University of Portsmouth and then to Australia, and I was awarded an Office of Learning and Teaching Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning in 2015 and a Vice-Chancellor's Award for Research Excellence (Early Career) in 2017.
I currently welcome interest for honours, masters and PhD projects looking at non-binary and genderqueer, queer theory, feminist theory, masculinism and possibly other aspects of gender and sociology.
