Anna has current research collaborations with the Social and Behavioural Research Unit (Hauora Māori PI), the Māori Health Workforce Development Unit, and the Next Generation Studies – Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Research Unit.

Anna has recently completed her Master of Public Health, looking at Cultural Competency for Health Researchers.
