I am a researcher, writer and oral historian based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. I have a particular interest in gender, race, and environmental histories.
I have a Master of Arts in History with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland. My thesis, ‘A world beyond the waters: Māori travel in the Tasman World, 1793-1839’, was shortlisted for the Bert Roth Award.
Between 2014 and 2017 I worked as a historian/researcher at the Waitangi Tribunal. More recently, I have undertaken contract history work for Crown Law (a co-authored history of the New Zealand justice system) and hapū (Takutai Moana).
In 2020 my original oral history research on reproductive rights was made into a podcast for the Australian Broadcast Corporation (ABC). I am currently working on a podcast series about crime and punishment in New Zealand.
I welcome inquiries about working together.
