Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am a PhD candidate within the School of Psychology supervised by Dr 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 wellbeing and pregnancy experiences of mothers and families with refugee and migrant backgrounds in Australia. We aim to better understand how services and healthcare practitioners may provide culturally appropriate, tailored care to match the needs of families from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
