After studying a Master of Public Health, I specialised in working with marginalised pregnant women, in the community, in Australia. Currently I am a PhD candidate at University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, focusing on the experience of women seeking asylum, in the perinatal period. Also, I am working as a casual academic and midwife.
My research interest is understanding how to improve the care of marginalised women by addressing structural, and professional issues and education.
