I am currently a Senior Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer at The University of Melbourne where I co-direct the Literary Education Lab: our diverse projects intersect around the significance of literary texts in English secondary education; the place of literature in qualitative research methodologies; strong STEM themes in literature; and the relationship between literary education and social and climate justice.
I also I co-direct WalkingLab a SSHRC-funded international network of artists and researchers interested in walking as a research methodology and research-creation.
I am one half of Oblique Curiosities, an electronic glitch folk duo.
I am a founding member of Hamilton Perambulatory Unit, a socially engaged walking-art collective in Hamilton, Ontario.
