She has particular expertise in the use of deliberative methods of engagement with communities, but her research skill set extends across qualitative research and includes the incorporation of insights from quantitative research. She has led community engagement activities with citizens, patients and stakeholders across  projects combining citizens’ juries, in-depth interviews, focus groups, surveys, participant and non-participant observation, document and media analysis.  Her current research spans ethical and socially acceptable use of big data in healthcare, vaccination policy and programs, and culturally safe care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
