I am the Deputy Dean (Research) for the School of Education & the Arts at CQUniversity, in Noosa (Queensland). I have experience teaching across a wide array of subjects in the arts and humanities, with particular interest in Australian writing. I also research into higher education teaching and learning, particularly in the creative arts postgraduate space.
My PhD thesis, The Australian Beachspace: flagging the spaces of Australian beach texts, was completed in 2013. I continue to publish about the Australian beach, fiction, and film.
