Research interests:

As an Asian Studies scholar and anthropologist my most significant contribution to knowledge revolves around rethinking ways in which gender operates in the Indonesian archipelago.

I have published two monographs on this topic. One text is a theoretical exploration of gender and sexuality and the other is an ethnographic case study on the ways individuals negotiate gendered selves from adolescence onwards. I have also published Sex and Sexualities in Contemporary Indonesia with Linda Bennett. This book was the 2015 winner of the Ruth Benedict prize for best edited collection, awarded by the American Anthropology Association and the 2016 International Convention of Asian Scholars book prize.

In 2018, I took up a two month visiting scholar position at the Southeast Asian Studies Center at Sydney University. I also presented talks at Witwaterstrand University and the University of the Western Cape in South Africa. In 2017, I was visiting scholar at Peking University. In 2014/2015, I took up a Fulbright award to visit the US and a Leverhulme Visiting Professorship at the University of Cambridge, hosted by Social Anthropology. In addition to research and writing I enjoy lecturing and in 2010 I was co-recipient of an AUT Vice Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching. I was the 2015 winner of the Faculty of Culture and Society Research Excellence award and the 2018 winner of the VC Research Impact Award.

I have supervised PhD students on such topics as: HIV prevention among pregnant mothers; surf tourism; transgender in Bangladesh; Steiner education; children's voice within the law; Southeast Asian migration; and social media communities.
From 2019, I have been working with Rhonda Shaw and Elizabeth Kerekere on a Marsden-funded project exploring assisted reproduction and Kiwi kinship in Aotearoa.
