I am an experienced qualitative researcher, evaluator and educator with a particular affiliation for matters of cultural and social justice and inequality. My work spans disability, gender and sexuality, public health, and community contexts, across public and voluntary sectors.
I have expertise in collaborative research and evaluation methodologies. I am committed to working in ways that are non-hierarchal and geared towards action and socially-transformative outcomes. My work focuses on advancing the health and well-being outcomes for disabled people, their families and whānau. I am a parent to a young disabled son and believe that research and evaluation should be driven by the expertise and needs of communities.
