Talia undertook her PhD at CAEPR as a Sir Roland Wilson scholar.  Her PhD research focussed on everyday reconciliation in the education system on Ngunnawal - Ngambri Country.  Talia explored the messages primary school children receive and interpret about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their cultures, Australian history, and reconciliation.

Talia is currently working on a project within the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences exploring institutionalising transformative reconciliation through organisational cultural change.  She is also convening the Indigenous Studies first year undergraduate course.
