Personal profile


My work over the last decade has focused on autism, inclusive schooling and the politics of stigma. 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 work is interdisciplinary, spanning anthropology, sociology, feminist theory and disability studies. After working for Autism Spectrum Australia and the Australian Human Rights Commission, I have returned to Macquarie University as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in autism. To date, I have published 2 books, 16 sole-authored journal articles and 5 book chapters (2 in-press) as well as journalism, memoir, poetry and theatre reviews. My most recent book is a memoir, Do Oysters Get Bored? A Curious Life (UWA Publishing).
