Ko Karen Keelan tōku ingoa

Kia ora, my name is Karen Keelan.  My role as Māori Research Advisor is to manage and increase the responsiveness of research undertaken at the University of Otago, Christchurch to meet the needs and aspirations of Māori. 

Other facets of my role include maintaining, building and bridging relationships between Māori (Ngai Tahu and Mataa Waka), the University and researchers. 

I have a strong interest in Māori health, particularly health inequalities research. 

Much of my employment history has been based working for and in health and social service sectors.
