I am the Year 4 course director for General Practice and Primary Health Care as well as the GP academic with responsibilities for Year 5 and 6 placements in Northland. I work part time in the Department of General Practice and Primary Health Care and part time as the medical officer for Ki A Ora Ngātiwai, an iwi health provider based in Northland. 

My research interests broadly coalesce around the theme of quality of primary care. I am particularly interested in equity, access issues and participatory action research. My PhD topic explores the concept of measuring quality of iwi health providers and utilises a Kaupapa Māori aligned methodology.
