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.
