Chloë is a writer and PhD candidate in Australian non-Indigenous history.

Chloë’s research explores the development and changes in law, policy and administration of immigration restriction during the early years of the White Australia policy.

She is tracing the creation of the process for the medical examination for immigrants and how that in turn led to the creation of a system for the deportation of immigrants defined as ‘prohibited’ for reasons of disease, illness, criminality and poverty found within the Immigration Restriction Act, 1901-1935.
