About me

Everything I have been and all the experiences I have had have resulted in a 29 year academic career and a 12 year business life. These experiences have included gaining a deep understanding of what makes people tick through my research and work in sociology, criminology, public health and professional development.

 

Since graduating with a PhD in Sociology from Flinders University in 2005, and working in the academic sector from 1993 till 2010, I have established a thriving business as an academic editor and as a member of the South Australian Society of Editors. To date, I have collaborated with more than 300 postgraduate students and academics across multiple disciplines, including in sociology, public health, nursing, politics, business, cultural studies, public policy, and history, among others.

 

I remain active in research and am currently employed as a Research Fellow at the Torrens Resilience Initiative at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia. My most recent completed projects have been on modern deterrence, and the effects of misinformation on social cohesion. My current project is on community resilience in drought-affected regions. 

 

Here are a couple of examples of my research publications:

Lived-Experience of Women’s Well-Being in the Cyclone Shelters of Coastal Bangladesh

Additive and subtractive resilience strategies as enablers of biographical reinvention: A qualitative study of ex-smokers and never-smokers

Understanding the experiences of women in disasters: lessons for emergency management planning

 

Overall, my academic teaching and research expertise is wide-ranging, encompassing the following elements:
