I am researching the Australian government’s relationship with the Croatian Australian Nationalist movement that blossomed in Australia during the post-war period.
My other research interests include Australian relations with Southern Africa during the Cold War, Australian decolonisation in the Pacific, Australian migration policy and the defence of Australia during the Second World War.
