Geoff is an early career historian and educator whose research examines Colonial and Imperial history and impacts, particularly in the Pacific region. He also researches and publishes around the development of human rights, with a particular emphasis on the Holocaust and Holocaust education. His PhD project centres around the role of outsiders in establishing Australian rule in Papua and New Guinea between 1906 and 1964. He has taught across a number of contexts, including schools on Cape York and rural Queensland, correctional facilities and refugee camps. Geoff is a proud Kunja man, whose family comes from the land around Cunnamulla, Western Queensland. He was a Yad Vashem scholar in 2017, and developed an educational package comparing and contrasting the experiences of the Holocaust with those experienced by Indigenous peoples in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth century.
