Research interests

My  transdisciplinary research spans governance and public policy, public health and cultural studies, ethics and informatics. It addresses the transboundary questions of how to address human wellbeing and security. The research focuses on perceptions of: what will work (and, conversely, what will not work); Why it will work; and How it will work. The discursive democracy process enables the inclusion of both service users and providers and could provide a way enhance service outcomes by narrowing the gap between service users perceived needs and service providers, build capacity and most importantly provide a means to develop evidence based policy and maintain flexibility, examples of research funding include:

  • 2013 Wellbeing and Climate Change with University of Indonesia
  • 2013 Resilience Score card - member of multidisciplinary team at Torrens Resilience Institute funded by National Emergency Management Projects
  • 2012 Zimbabwe early learning assessment UNICEF consultancy directed by Australian Education Council

Professional and community engagement

My research thinking and practice focuses on ways to enhance representation, accountability and sustainability through participatory democracy and govern. The Cophenhagen Climate Change Summit illustrates that even when organisations try to include diverse stakeholders and diverse viewpoints, the challenge remains as to how to include diverse viewpoints. We need to have public meeting spaces that can enable discussions on a regular basis locally, regionally and globally. Brown and Fox (in Edwards and Gaventa eds., 2001) stress that the internet is insufficient to build coalitions. Face to face local communications need to occur horizontally and representatives at regional level need to build face to face coalitions with other representatives and so on. But the internet can provide a means for these face to face links to be scaled up by representatives who act as "boundary spanners" (Christakis and Brahms 2003) because they have trusting relationships with counterparts at the regional and global level. I am interested in addressing the sorts of challenges that will arise when diverse stakeholders engage with one another on complex issues. "Joining up the dots" is more than an intellectual capability, it is a way of life.] How to achieve pluralism and sustainability is the subject of my research on ways to address complex health, housing and social inclusion needs.
