Social Policy Research Centre

I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Social Policy Research Centre in the Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture. My research employs a feminist economic and social policy lens to examine issues in the fields of poverty and inequality, informal care across the lifecourse and ageing and aged care.

Current  and recent projects include:

I am also an Associate Investigator with the UNSW Ageing Futures Institute (AFI) and I am currently conducting research for an AFI Seed Funding Grant 2020 project on Understanding unmet need in aged care: an interdisciplinary approach, with Associate Professor Myra Hamilton and Professor Carmelle Peisah.
