Senior Research Fellow, UNSW

I am an Australian Research Council DECRA fellow and health sociologist interested in exploring people's experiences of health, and the ways in which society and culture influence people’s health choices. My current research looks at the ways people navigate the Australian healthcare system and make choices about public and private health services; how social interactions and social context enable people to manage chronic conditions; and the lived experience of advanced cancer.
