Biography

Complex social problems, like child protection, don’t have simple solutions. I’m eager to investigate multidimensional poverty as a key driver of child maltreatment and to disentangle the ways that these two worlds interact. This research will pave the way for a fairer Australia, where all children have equal opportunity to grow up safe and supported.

 

Alongside research, I have worked in diverse teaching roles for the past six years, including teaching undergraduate and postgraduate public health courses and helping high school students with special needs reach their learning aspirations. I'm passionate about finding innovative ways to inspire curiosity and improve student learning experiences.

 

Outside of work, I enjoy chipping away at my to-read list, looking after my unpredictable plants, and discovering new hiking tracks to adventure out with good friends and trusted hiking boots.
