His areas of expertise include human rights, administrative and constitutional law, discrimination and freedom of information.

Ed leads the Commission's work on the Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture (OPCAT), which the Government announced it would ratify in February 2017, committing to establishing a regime of independent inspections for all places of detention in Australia.
