My research interests are intercultural societies, religious performances, materiality, and early encounters between indigenous and colonial representatives, especially in nineteenth-century Pacific societies. My History Honours, first-class, research paper at Deakin University is titled 'Imaginative Sketches: How expedition sketch maps represent the cultural work of both indigenous intermediaries and colonial emissaries'. My PhD thesis is tentatively titled 'Accepting change: how is culture conceptualised and performed in intercultural spaces.'
