Vision Statement

My research is inspired by aiming to respond to problems and concerns, observations and reflections made by people living in communities and working with them to identify solutions and methods to undertake community based research and action research. I hope to achieve through my work and working collaboratively with others solutions that contribute to social justice and the wellbeing of people who are part of and working with our range of research projects.
