My research is focused on building transdisciplinary understanding of sexuality and gender across diverse lifeworlds, taking account of issues related to sexual citizenship, cultural and religious difference and technologies of sexuality, education and health. I am co-editor, with Louisa Allen, Handbook of Sexuality Education (Palgrave, 2016). My research is informed by feminist theories and gender studies, and queer theory. I am currently researching two queer generations in Australia (people born in the 1970s and 1990s) and young Australian's understandings of religious and non-religious and worldviews. I am also researching reproduction and family formation in Australia.
