He was the UN's land rights adviser in post-conflict East Timor (2000) and post-tsunami Aceh (2005-6). In 2002 he published Land Claims in East Timor (230 pp., Asia Pacific Press), a work described by Sir Gerard Brennan -- former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia -- as "profound academic scholarship".

He has undertaken professional consultancies on law and development with the World Bank, AusAID, the Asian Development Bank, Oxfam International, the OECD, UNDP and UN-Habitat. His work with AusAID includes co-authoring the 2008 Making Land Work report for its Pacific Land Program. He has been a Visiting Professor at the National University of Singapore (2006-09), a Visiting Professor at the University of Muenster (2002), and a Distinguished Visitor at the University of Toronto (2007).
