I'm a Visiting Fellow in the School of Humanities at UNSW. My research covers climate change, energy policy and the social dimensions of the life sciences. I jointly hold the position (together with Dr. Sophie Adams) of Operating Agent for Australia's involvement with the User-Centred Energy Systems Technology Collaboration Program under the International Energy Agency. I also co-lead (with Prof. Matthew Kearnes) the Social Dimensions stream of ARC Centre of Excellence in CBNS. My primary research involves the social, ethical and political dimensions of targeted therapies and precision medicine.

I have also published widely on topics related to climate change policy and energy, including ‘The Rise and Fall of Carbon Emissions Trading’ (2015, Palgrave McMillan’s Energy and Environment Series edited by David Elliot). I have consulted to the Australian Council of Learned Academies on public engagement with technology.
