Higher Degree by Research Candidate
School of Psychology
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
I am a PhD candidate within the School of Psychology supervised by A/Prof Clemence Due, Dr Alyssa Sawyer and Dr Amanda Taylor. My research interests include refugee and migrant wellbeing, maternal and family wellbeing, promoting health equity, and reducing disparities in healthcare for marginalised groups.
My PhD focuses on the wellbeing experiences and support needs of families from refugee and migrant backgrounds in Australia during the First 2000 Days (conception to five years post-birth). We aim to better understand how services and healthcare practitioners may provide culturally responsive, tailored care to match the needs of families from refugee and migrant backgrounds through pregnancy and early childhood.
