position: Medical anthropologist


A medical anthropologist and senior lecturer in International Public Health, School of Public Health and the Department of Anthropology, School of Social and Political Sciences at Sydney University teaches in two Masters Programs - International Public Health, and Development Studies. My research interests focus on illness and healing ethnography and the delivery and quality of health care, particularly the interface between medicine and culture. I have worked in the Asia-Pacific, Australia, and conducted ethnographic research of village folk's access to health care in Indonesia. Recent researches include failed asylum seekers and forced migration, tertiary hospital ethnographies of clinicians' interactions with each other in Australia, and Jakarta, Indonesia. Currently I work on World Health Organization (WHO) funded research on 'Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI, H5N1) - a community response in Bali and Lombok, Indonesia' and 'Assessing household patterns of poultry and egg production in relation to their contribution to the local Timor Leste diet'.
