Dylan is a Kokatha (Gugatha) Aboriginal/Greek woman from the far west coast of South Australia. She is a Lecturer in Yaitya Purruna Indigenous Health Unit, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, at the University of Adelaide. In 2011, Dylan completed her doctorate at the University of Adelaide's English Department. It explores Indigenous narrative process and its capacity to recreate stories of trauma and loss into ones of survival and liberation.
