Research Interests

I have been working as a Māori/public health researcher since completing my Masters degree in public health in 2000. I have been involved in research across a wide range of areas relating to Māori advancement, including traditional Māori healing, Māori-focused service, programme and organisational evaluation, and Māori community, iwi and hapū development. I am currently enrolled in a PhD in Health Sciences, investigating the relation of identity construction to transformative action.
