I am a Senior Lecturer at the Adelaide Law School and deputy chair of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Ethics Specialist Group.
Since 2005 I have worked with Friends of the Earth Adelaide in the Clean Futures Collective. In this role I have engaged in community advocacy, developed submissions in response to mining projects in South Australia, acted as media spokesperson, organised working trips to aboriginal communities in northern South Australia and organised significant public conferences. I was a founding member of the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature and I currently sit on the management committee of the Australian Earth Law Alliance. From 2007-2011 I sat on the executive committee of the Conservation Council South Australia and from 2011-2013 I sat on the management committee of the Environmental Defenders Office (SA). I am a National Tertiary Education Union delegate for the law school and a member of the Adelaide Law School Public Law and Policy Research Unit.
