My research focuses on the role of courts in relation to other branches of government: a topic that extends to aspects of constitutional, administrative and procedural law. Much of my work has drawn on qualitative interviews with people responsible for creating and applying law and policy, including judges, politicians, and government lawyers. I am Director of the Public Law and Policy Research Unit.

My current research topics include: 

  • The relationship between the Australian Constitution and Australian national identity
  • Judicial federalism: the legal and practical operation of Australia's State and Territory courts in the federal system
  • The influence of Chapter III of the Constitution on State and Territory lawmaking 
  • A public law perspective on online courts
  • The constitutional position of tribunals in Australia
  • The role of judges in managing extremely complex civil litigation
