I am an Australian historian employed at University of Queensland. My work focuses on sexual violence, including sexual assaults on women and children in twentieth century Australia.
I have published widely on sexual crimes, including child sexual abuse and rape in marriage. I am the author of two monographs, Let’s Talk About Sex: Histories of Sexuality in Australia from Federation to the Pill, and Sex Crimes in the 1950s (co-authored with Andy Kaldelfos). The latter was shortlisted for the NSW Premier’s Prize in 2017.
