Role

Lecturer, Pathways Program

Research interests

My current research interests are currently centred on understanding the needs of students transitioning into university study. I am particularly interested in the learning journey of non-traditional students encountering tertiary study for the first time, and the ways these students and the tertiary system unsettle one another in equal measure. My PhD is a creative work concerned with the ways women raised by women with unresolved trauma create their understandings of womanhood and the role of women in society.
