She is particularly interested in Online Dispute Resolution, and teaches Australia's first unit dedicated to ODR.

Genevieve has an extensive track record of interdisciplinary research partnerships with government agencies, compensation schemes, regulators and dispute resolution organisations. Her work has attracted more than $1.6m in external funding, and she is an Associate Investigator in the NHMRC-funded Centre for Research Excellence in Recovery Following Road Traffic Injuries. 

Genevieve has a PhD in public health and law from The University of Melbourne. Before coming to Monash, she worked as a Research Fellow in the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, as a Senior Fellow in the Melbourne Law School and as a personal injury litigation lawyer.
