Research Biography

I am a Research Fellow at the Research Centre for Palliative Care, Death and Dying. I have a medical background and had worked in the Iranian Ministry of Health for 8 years when I practiced as a general practitioner and was involved in the national planning and implementation of primary health care policies and programs. I moved to Australia in 2002 and completed a Graduate Diploma in Human Nutrition (2005) and PhD in public health (2008) at Flinders University. I have 14 years of experience in public health and health services research. My areas of research interest include equity, public health palliative care, improve access to palliative and end of life services for vulnerable population groups, and community engagement. I have expertise in program evaluation and qualitative research methods and have been involved in a number of large and complex health services research projects that required strong engagement with communities and collaboration with health practitioners and national and regional organisations.
