Senior Lecturer, School of Curriculum Teaching & Inclusive Education, Monash University

Anne’s research, teaching and engagement work enhances the provision of socially-just education in diverse cultural and linguistic educational settings. She joined Monash University as a Lecturer in 2015. Her teaching interests are in the fields of early childhood education, bi/multilingualism, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [TESOL]. Her research employs a qualitative intergenerational longitudinal approach. It explores social and educational responses to risk and resilience to gain a better understanding of the impact of conflict on changes in families and family relationships, and how these changes shape transitions to education, work and community life.

Anne's research prioritises an interdisciplinary collaborative research approach with other disciplines, universities and industry partners. She has researched in international contexts with partners from universities in the UK, Nordic states and Israel, publishing and presenting conference papers with industry partners in the field of early childhood education.

Anne's research is methodologically innovative in its analysis and presentation of cultural artefacts, journal entries, photographs and audio recorded interviews and focus groups. It is exemplified in a website which she created to share research findings of a qualitative longitudinal intergenerational study on three generations of Australian mothers and daughters.

She is an experienced educator who has taught across the early childhood, schools and higher education sectors.
