School of Clinical Medicine

I am a Senior Research Associate at the School of Women’s and Children’s Health at UNSW. My research experience reflects a keen interest in qualitative methods and knowledge translation. I have more than eight years’ experience conducting qualitative research in healthcare, with a specific passion for arts-based and innovative methodologies. This work has included exploring health priorities and knowledge translation in community based palliative care, knowledge translation in youth health, the delivery of mental health services to rural populations, and the evaluation of health implementation initiatives. I hold a Doctor of Philosophy from Western Sydney University, and a Masters in Qualitative Health Research at The University of Sydney.
