I am a Vice-Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of International Studies. I have previously held research positions at the Australian Institute of Criminology and the South Australian Office of Crime Statistics and Research. Prior to my recent appointment, I was an Adjunct Lecturer with the Flinders Law School.
My current research project is titled 'Anti-Colonialism and Communism in the Commonwealth: A Comparative History of the Communist Parties of Great Britain, Australia and South Africa, 1920-1960'. This project will explore how the Communist Parties in Britain, Australia and South Africa embraced anti-colonial politics in the interwar and postwar periods, as well as their relationships with each other and with the Comintern in Moscow.
I am also currently working on a monograph on the body, 'race' and gender in British immigration control history with Assoc. Prof. Marinella Marmo in the Flinders Law School for Palgrave Macmillan.
