In 1990, I was a tutor at the University of Sydney; in 1991-92, I was a contract lecturer at the University of Wollongong. Between 1993 and 1996, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Research School of Social Sciences at ANU. Since then, I have been a member of the Philosophy Department at Monash University. I was elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Humanities in 2009.
