Research Fellow

Biography

I am of Ngāpuhi and Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairoa descent. I am a Research Fellow at the James Henare Māori Research Centre and am working across several research streams involving Māori communities. My research background is varied. I completed a PhD on whaikōrero in the Roman world, before moving into projects involving Māori student success and career development. I am currently involved in the development of a research programme looking at the aspirations of Māori communities and the uptake of new horticultural technologies and the impact this will have. I am also involved in ageing projects looking at the relationship between kaumātua health and wellbeing, the nature of intergenerational support and the wider responsibilities for kaumātua health.
