Personal profile

Research Biography

I am a qualitative and quantitative social scientist and have an overarching interest in health inequities, in particular multidisciplinary and multimethod approaches to understanding the social determinants of health. My main focus more recently has been on the social determinants of refugee health and wellbeing, and also the links between discrimination and health.

I am a co-convenor of the Migrant and Refugee Research Network (MARRNet).
