Amelia is Associate Professor in Law at UNSW, where she teaches and researches in planning and urban governance.

Amelia’s work is interdisciplinary, drawing on qualifications in Architecture and City Policy as well as Law, and professional experience in the planning, housing and transport departments in WA, and at the Environmental Defenders Office in NSW. Her research centres on frameworks for decision-making in contemporary cities – who gets to have a say, and how – and the ways in which those frameworks might contribute to social and environmental justice.
