Research Overview


  • Kylie started work at the University of Wollongong in January 2017. Before this, she was a research fellow at the Australian Centre for Agriculture and Law. Kylie has won multiple awards for her applied research in the fields of intellectual property law, access and benefit sharing mechanisms, and cultural heritage law. Her particular focus is on how these laws can better support the interests of Indigenous peoples in their traditional resources and knowledge. This research links to developments at the Convention on Biological Diversity, UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, World Intellectual Property Organisation and UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

    Kylie’s past projects have examined the regulatory frameworks for bush foods, native plants, genetic resources, invasive species, protected areas, animal rights and cultural rights. This work has influenced law reform in Australia and Brazil. Her most recent work explored access and benefit sharing mechanisms in the Australian sandalwood and South Sea Pearl industries, and the role of law schools in supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law students. The latter project has led to the formation of the Working Group on Strategies to Support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Law Students at the University of Wollongong, of which Kylie is co-chair. Her current research explores wrongful convictions in the criminal justice system.
