Personal profile

Biography

My interests and research have revolved around the anthropology and sociology of childhood, mostly in terms of the economic and educational dimension of children in poor contexts. I have conducted research on child labour in Indonesia and on migrant families in Australia. From 2012 to 2016 I taught an experiential learning unit “Internships in Social Research”, which has triggered my interest in the application of the social sciences and on the role of higher education institutions and external organisations in supporting experiential learning opportunities for students.  Since 2017 I am the academic director of the PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) in the Faculty of Arts. This role has allowed me to further advocate for the university's community engagement, to offer quality experiential learning opportunities to students, and for academics to pursue applied research.
