Senior Lecturer – Youth Work and International Development, Australian Catholic University

I am a senior lecturer who teaches in the youth work and international development degrees. I came to ACU 15 years ago after working extensively in the youth and community sectors in Australia and South Asia. I have worked extensively with refugee young people and have recently completed the first longitudinal ethnographic study to explore refugee young people and homelessness in Australia.
I have worked with, and on behalf of, young people and communities in the areas of refugee settlement, displacement, homelessness, rights and participation, and capacity building. I have published widely in the area of young people and marginalisation and I am particularly interested in working in hopeful and positive ways to change social inequalities and exclusion.
