Personal profile


Dr Danielle Moon (BA Oxon, MRes, PhD) is an academic at Macquarie University. As a qualified solicitor with a decade of experience in advising Central Government departments in the United Kingdom on complex and high profile issues of law and policy, she has a particular interest in how law works in practice, and how law influences government administrative decision-making. Her current research focuses on freedom of information law from the perspective of public servants, how to address organisational disincentives to openness, and the role of Information Commmissioners.
