Personal profile

Research Biography

I am an Associate Professor and Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian (AdvAPD) in the Discipline of Population Health at Flinders University. I am driven to undertake research, educate and collaborate in a way that reflects my values of integrity, high ethical standards, and for the betterment of the local, national and global community. 

I have extensive experience in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and food systems research. My PhD, awarded in 2012, is entitled 'Addressing Uncomfortable Issues: The role of White health professionals in Aboriginal health'. My research looks at ways in which health professionals, especially those that are non-Aboriginal, can work best with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It also explores how approaches to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health can be strengths-based, rather than focussed on deficits. My work in food systems explores how trust in the food system can be maximised, especially during a food incident. I have also undertaken research about attitudes and behaviours related to COVID-19 testing, and qualitative research and social justice in Nutrition and Dietetics practice.


In 2022 I delivered a lecture as part of the BRAVE Lecture Series at Flinders University entitled 'Courageous Questions: Transforming non-Indigenous leadership in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health' which can be accessed here:

In 2022 I was a finalist in the South Australia Indaily 40 under 40 awards; awards which celebrate the vision, passion and achievements of SA's young leaders.
