As a Research Fellow at the Centre for Regional Engagement (University of South Australia) I work in the area of rural sociology. I have a particular research interest in contemporary social/cultural theories of gender and class and how these might be used to explore the lives of rural people. Through work with the Spencer Gulf Rural Health School (a joint initiative between University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia) I am developing a research focus on the connections between rural health service delivery and social, cultural and economic processes tied to the lived experiences of rural people.
