Personal profile

Biography

I am the Associate Dean of Research at the Faculty of Business, Government and Law. Our research centres around the neXus research centre: http://www.canberra.edu.au/research/faculty-research-centres/nexus-centre-for-research

My research examines the politics of information concerning accounting, law, politics, regulation, and discourses of capital. My work is trans-disciplinary and concerns how information (including metrics, economics, accounting and statistics) is used within legal and political processes, which explores the interface of law and regulation within government, public policy, corporate, regulatory and litigation settings. Traditionally, information is presented in legal and political environments as apolitical, objective and capable of resolving problems and conflicts. My research investigates the politics of 'information', depicting the role of information at methodological, technical, and political levels.

I draw on a range of post-structural theory in my work, including Laclau and Mouffe, Hardt and Negri, Lazzarato, Gramsci, Luxemburg, Marx, and have a deep interest in jurisprudential theory, research philosophy and post-colonial literatures. Thus, my research focuses on three main pillars: the politics of information (in an ontological sense); the nature of governance and regulation; and the discourse of capital.
