Dr Marshall is a cross-disciplinary scholar whose research focusses on the disciplines of law, political science, and regulatory and development studies. Her research has informed labour law reform in several countries and the policies of the International Labour Organisation regarding informal, precarious workers.
Dr Marshall has been the principle investigator and co-coordinator of three large, multi-country grants. In 2016, she and her team published 19 reports on access to remedy when communities and workers experience human rights breaches at the hands of transnational business. In a book to be published in 2017, she canvases a proposal for a new international labour law system which would allow precarious workers to make claims for living wages.
Dr Marshall earned her PhD in 2015 from ANU for her research into insights from regulatory theory for transnational labour regulation. In addition, she holds a Masters in development studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Dr Marshall was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellowship in 2017 and is based in the Graduate School of Business and Law.
