I previously undertook law and policy research at the Australian Senate, Australian Institute of Criminology and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

I have written two books: DNA Evidence in the Australian Legal System (LexisNexis, 2016) and Biometrics, Crime and Security (Routledge, 2018); and my third, Technology Law in Australia is under contract with Cambridge University Press. I have published in journals including the Journal of Law and Medicine, the University of New South Wales Law Journal, the Criminal Law Journal, the Australian Law Journal and the Australian Journal of Forensic Sciences, and have presented at conferences around the world.
