I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate int he College of Nursing and Health Sciences. I am currently involved in the Fundamental Care enabling theme within the Caring Futures Institute, where I contribute to research exploring fundamental care and caregiving relationships in professional healthcare settings.

My broader research program is focused on exploring sexuality and sexual health related care within mental healthcare settings, and aims to improve people's experiences of engaging mental health services by promoting a broader consideration of sexuality and sexual health within these services. My work contributes to current discussions around ethical practice, best care, and training standards regarding sexuality in mental health settings.

My research interests lie broadly in health and healthcare provision, consumer experiences, sexuality, and LGBTQIA health. My research skills include both qualitative and quantitative approaches and analysis.
