Biography

I have a strong attachment to Flinders, having studied here and taught and researched in Public Health since 1990. My practice background includes clinical experience as a psychologist, the founding director of a community based service for children and families and as a chief planning officer in a health system. I have taught child and educational psychology and public health at tertiary level. My academic appointment involves teaching public health at master's level and in the medical course; research in the social studies of childhood, policy and practice and more recently the relationship between public health and climate change. An important part of my work is course and topic administration, and service to the profession and community. I am an Executive Member of the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity and also have an honorary appointment at the University of Melbourne.

Teaching interests

My teaching interests revolve around combining developing knowledge and understanding with reflection on practice with the aim of contributing to a fairer, more sustainable world.  This fits the views of Paulo Freire who, writing in Pedagogy of the Oppressed, said that "Education either functions as an instrument ...to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world."

I have spent time developing new curricula and courses: eg Master of Primary Health Care; Doctor of Public Health; Master of Remote Health; Health, Professions and Society in the medical course, work with the MPH at University of Western Cape, South Africa; mental health courses jointly with Flinders and University of Queensland and a School of Public Health (with an MPH) at Patan Academy of Health Sciences in Nepal. In all these endeavours I have worked to combine theory and practice, drawing on my own primary health care practice background. Crucially, this has involved thinking carefully on the pedagogy and practice of distance education: from print and post to fax to email to web and now to phones and wireless devices. 

Over the years I have improved my skills by working with the (then) Australian Network of Academic Public Health Institutions on joint projects, funded teaching initiatives and in professional development events.More recently I have trained in Problem Based Learning and have learned how to develop curriculum using well defined outcomes to drive curriculum to be more socially responsible and engaging for students.In the last few years I have taught at universities in France, Germany and Poland.

Research interests

My research is inspired by the World Health Organisation's Commission on the Social Determinants of Health: "The toxic combination of bad policies, economics and politics is, in a large measure. responsible for the fact that a majority of people in the world do not enjoy the good health that is biologically possible. Social injustice is killing people on a large scale."
http://www.who.int/social_determinants/thecommission/finalreport/en/index.html

I try to play my part in researching social justice in three interlocking research areas:

  • the new social studies of childhood which, underpinned by a children's rights approach, seek to involve children in research, policy and practice decisions that affect their lives - with a developing interest in climate change and disasters;
  • policy that promotes equitable improvements in health and wellbeing;
  • the intersection of health and ecology to explore equitable public health responses to climate change: in particular water/drought and bushfires.

My research base is the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity at Flinders. Here, I take part in interdisciplinary research collaboration and development. http://www.flinders.edu.au/medicine/sites/southgate/about/about.cfm

For my work with childhood and bushfires in Victoria, I have a productive partnership with the School of Population Health at Melbourne University as Principal Fellow (Honorary) in the Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing Program in the McCaughey Centre. http://www.mccaugheycentre.unimelb.edu.au/research/brockhoff

I am currently working with researchers at Flinders University, Melbourne University, University of Magdeburg-Stendal in Germany, Universitaire de Rennes 2 in France, University of Montreal in Canada and Glasgow Caledonian University.My research is always in teams and I enjoy working with people with the skills, values and humanity to be reflective and critical and, when necessary, to extend or develop research methods to answer complex or difficult research questions.

In 2011 I will be running a Research Incubator to develop research proposals.

I contribute to the public health community by conducting workshops and community based research.
