Personal profile


I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow contributing to diverse qualitative research on autism. I am part of a team, headed by Professor Liz Pellicano, distinguished by a shared commitment to research that empowers autistic people and their supporters and questions deficit-focused approaches. Recent projects include world first research on experiences of autism in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, an oral history study of late-diagnosed autistics and interviews with individuals who donated biological materials to the Australian Autism Biobank. I have two PhDs - one in social anthropology awarded in 1994 by the Australian National University and the other in early childhood awarded in 2015 by Macquarie University. My approach is interdisciplinary, spanning anthropology, sociology, feminist theory and disability studies. My most recent book, a memoir titled "Do Oysters Get Bored? A Curious Life" (UWA Publishing, 2018), was shortlisted for the National Biography Award in 2019.
