Anna joined the Faculty of Laws in 2021. Her PhD research examines changing international legal practices in respect of critical technologies and strategic goods, and their relationship to transformations in global capitalism. Bringing together materials from the fields of international trade and investment law, peace and security and the laws of war, her project seeks to understand the history and reemergence of these practices and their present significance for economic ordering and political life. Anna also has wider research interests in international law and theories of private power, Australian law and histories of settler colonialism, and the methodological encounters between legal research and histories of capitalism. 

Anna holds an LLM from Harvard Law School, where she was a Frank Knox Fellow, and a JD and MPhil from the University of Melbourne, where she was an editor-in-chief of the Melbourne Journal of International Law. Prior to commencing the PhD, she was a Teaching Fellow at Melbourne Law School teaching in public law and history, and a Senior Program Fellow with the Laureate Program in International Law directed by Professor Anne Orford, where she completed a research project on the law, history and political economy of post-war constitution-making. In 2019–2020, she served as an associate to Justice Susan Kenny at the Federal Court of Australia, and is qualified as an Australian legal practitioner and an officer of the Supreme Court of Victoria.

Anna’s publications include the volumes Revolutions in International Law: the Legacies of 1917 (as co-editor, with Kathryn Greenman, Anne Orford and Ntina Tzouvala) and Cold War International Law (as associate editor, with Matthew Craven, Sundhya Pahuja and Gerry Simpson). She has also published work with leading university presses on decolonisation and the corporation in international law (co-authored with Sundhya Pahuja) and the histories of European human rights. Her research is supervised by Dr Megan Donaldson and supported by the AHRC through the London Arts and Humanities Partnership.
