Overview

Research Interests

  • Social Determinants of Health
    Health inequalities and the social determinants of health are foundational in my research and teaching. I am commited to conducting research in this area and sharing this work with my students in the classroom
  • Health and the wellbeing of marginalised and disadvantaged communities
    We are currently working with a number of population groups who are at risk of disadvantage and marginalisation (including people living with HIV and people with an intellectual disability)
  • Health Care Navigation
    Our work in this area has focused on referral pathways between the primary care and community health sector with increasing emphasis on integrated care with secondary health systems. This includes a specific interest in peer and nurse navigation
