Senior Lecturer, Auckland University of Technology, Faculty of Culture and Society, School of Social Sciences and Public Policy
As a specialist in criminology and criminal justice, and as a scholar-activist, I am dedicating my career to anti-racism and to centring Indigenous voices. Both my research and teaching serve to consider the contributions criminology as an academic discipline has made, and continues to make, to the oppression of Indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities. Recognising this reality, I have come to identify myself as an anti-criminologist. As such, I am — in collaboration with like-minded academics across the globe — on a journey to find better ways to address social harm within academia and ultimately within society.
