Teaching

Staying current with the latest developments in the fast-moving landscape of national security politics is critical. All the courses I teach are therefore heavily informed by my ongoing research. Currently, I teach two MA courses at the National Security College:

Research Methods in National Security Policy

Crisis Management in National Security Strategy

 

Consultancy

In Australia, I regularly present my research on the governance of security (aviation, maritime and critical infrastructure protection) to the Commonwealth and State governments. I have also provided public submissions to the Independent National Security Legislation Monitor and the Queensland Parliament on counter-terrorism and security legislation.
