Research

I am a Research Fellow in the Ngāi Tahu Māori Health Research Unit and work closely with our team of researchers on a variety of health research projects. I have extensive experience in quantitative and qualitative data assessment, as well as design and implementation of interventions, my goal is to improve health outcomes for Māori. My research focus in the unit has been on health services improvement research with the aim of reducing the long-standing health inequalities of our people. My main areas of research interest are:
  • Health services improvement and intervention development using a kaupapa Māori framework
  • Qualitative studies to help improve primary care, injury rehabilitation and other health services for Māori patients
