Dr Aryati Yashadhana is an early career researcher whose work focuses on socioeconomic, cultural and political determinants of health, intersectional health equity (gender, race, class), and international development. Her research has largely taken place in collaboration with Aboriginal community members in Australia (NSW and Northern Territory), with a focus on analysing the cultural dimensions of access in the context of eye health and chronic disease. Dr Yashadhana specialises in qualitative and participatory methodologies, with a particular interest in critical race and decolonizing theories, the way marginalised peoples and cultures interface with dominant systems and structures, and analysing access to health systems and services.
