Personal profile


As Associate Research Fellow, I am working on an ARC-funded project that explores the help-seeking and help-giving practices of Indigenous social media users. The project seeks to develop understandings of the conditions under which people do and do not choose to seek or provide help through social media. 

My PhD research explored the politics of volunteering in a mentoring program provided by a refugee support organisation. Drawing on the work of Deleuze and Guattari, the project sought to rethink the politics of care through assemblage as agencement. More specifically, it unpacked both what makes care possible and what care makes possible. In this way, the project empirically engaged with 'what works' for mobilising and immobilising care for and about refugees through assemblage thinking—extending conceptual discussions in geographies of care and best practice models of volunteering.
