A historian with archival and editing qualifications, she has worked as information architect and exhibition designer on the Australian Women’s Archives Project since its inception in 2000, and is co-editor of the Australian Women’s Register.
Helen was an investigator on the ARC-funded ‘Trailblazing Women and the Law Project’ (2012-16) and from 2017 an investigator on the ‘Invisible Farmer’ project, celebrating the vital role of rural women in Australia.
