Personal Statement

Personal Statement

Having been trained in the fields of Social Work, Social Justice Education and Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies, I bring an interdisciplinary approach to both my teaching and research. I apply a social justice framework, attention to multi-level analysis, intersectionality, positionality and power, to social work practice, research and teaching.
