Lecturer, Department of Design, Monash University

Dr Gill Matthewson is a founding member of the XYX Lab at Monash University and is currently undertaking research with Moreland City Council and Casey City Council. For many years she has been investigating the gendered substructure of the architecture profession, particularly as it manifests in the weakening participation of women. More recently, her research focus has been the impact of the gendering of space on how sex, gender and sexuality may limit who and what contributes to the production of, and participation in, the spatial culture of cities. Dr Matthewson’s particular skills are quantitative and qualitative data analysis and visualisation to highlight these impacts.
