I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the College of Nursing & Health Sciences. I am currently involved in the knowledge translation research program within an NHRMC funded Centre of Research Excellence in Transdisciplinary Frailty Research under the supervision of Professor Alison Kitson. In this role, I use knowledge translation methods to inform effective transfer of knowledge in policy and practice. This research contributes to a consolidated frailty and healthy ageing strategy in South Australia.

More generally, I am interested in using critical and qualitative methods to explore representations of a range of health and illness topics, including dementia, frailty, and community aged care.
