Danielle’s main research interests are the policy dynamics of the Korean peninsula, the role of non-traditional actors in security arenas, human rights activism, and the interaction of policy and public opinion in Australia.

Danielle has published books on Australian foreign policy and North Korean human rights.

  • Australian Public Opinion, Defence and Foreign Policy examines attitudes and trends in Australian public opinion since 1945. It is co-authored with Professor Ian McAllister (ANU) and published in 2021 with Palgrave.
  • North Korean human rights: activists and networks is a Cambridge University Press volume edited with Andrew I. Yeo (Catholic University of America in Washington DC). It examines transnational advocacy over the north korean human rights issue and was published in hardback in 2018, and in paperback in 2019.
  • Contentious activism and inter-Korean relations, Danielle’s first book, was published by Columbia University Press in 2014. The book was officially launched by the Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG. The book examines the role played by political activists in shaping the discussion of inter-Korean relations as they pursue the separate yet connected agendas of democracy, human rights, and unification.

Danielle joined Deakin in 2012, after working as a Research Fellow at the Honolulu-based security studies think tank, Pacific Forum CSIS. She has also worked as a lecturer at The Australian National University and Hawaii Pacific University, and as a researcher in the Australian Parliamentary Library’s Social Policy branch. Danielle completed her PhD at The Australian National University, in the College of Asia and the Pacific.
