Scientia Fellow, Centre for Social Research in Health, UNSW

Dr Kari Lancaster is a Scientia Fellow at the Centre for Social Research in Health (CSRH), UNSW. Kari’s research uses critical policy studies approaches (including those informed by poststructural theory and science and technology studies) to contribute to contemporary discussions about emerging issues of political and policy significance in the fields of drugs and viral hepatitis. Kari’s research has examined how policy problems and policy knowledges are constituted, and the dynamics of ‘evidence-based’ policy.

Prior to joining CSRH, Kari worked as part of the Drug Policy Modelling Program (DPMP) at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC).

Kari is Assistant Commissioning Editor of Addiction, and a member of the editorial boards of both the International Journal of Drug Policy and Drugs: Education, Prevention and Policy.
