Somehow I’m now embedded in life at the University of Melbourne despite subsisting, like many early career researchers, on a variety of tenuous contracts. I am learning about course coordination and teaching from the inspiring Kathryn Williams tutoring the Masters course Interdisciplinarity and the Environment, as well as tutoring an undergraduate course in the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. Academic teaching is relatively new for me so I’m investing a lot of time and energy in this learning.
I’m continuing technology development work with Research Platforms particularly on Figshare. My work with Melbourne Law School recently has included creating this infographic of international forestry laws.
As an early career researcher, I’ll soon be going to Sydney to present about rethinking law, economy and environment at an interdisciplinary workshop at UNSW. Then I’ll be returning to Melbourne where I’m presenting in the Centre for Media and Communications Law conference in November in collaboration with Florence Seow.
All of this has left me little time for creative projects outside of academia, though I have been fitting in training with Impro Melbourne and performing at Club Voltaire occasionally. I also presented at Laborastory on Mabo Day, and celebrated the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland at Carlton Connect. My next comedy show is likely to be around Halloween.
