I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Historical and Classical Studies. My dissertation researches histories of conflict and alliances between workers and environmentalists in Australia since 1975. My history honours thesis, completed in 2021, combined oral history and archival research to document student radicalism at Flinders University during the ‘long 1960s’. I work broadly in the field of Australian history, with a particular interest in labour and environmental history, social movements, political radicalism and oral history.

During 2023, I am working on a collaborative research project on working-class environmentalism in Scotland, based at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. This research hopes to illuminate how working people and their communities have been impacted by and responded to environmental injustice.
