Projects per year
My research interests include gender equality for rural and remote women: linguistic and cultural diversity: mother-tongue education: the evaluation of mother tongue education programmes: the training of mother-tongue educators and of endangered language documentation by Indigenous speakers. My research methodologies have included mixed and unique qualitative, with basic quantitative, methods.
My current research includes working with agricultural communities in developing countries, including PNG and Pakistan.
I am currently working on two ACIAR funded research projects. 1) In PNG with women and their families developing, implementing and evaluating a Women’s Team Leadership training programmes. 2) A water sustainability research project based in Pakistan that aims to increase productivity and profitability, to reduce poverty, of small and middle-sized irrigated farms through improved water and nutrient management on irrigated farms.
I am a founding member of UC CIRI (The University of Canberra Collaborative Indigenous Research Initiative). UC CIRI is a new network of researchers committed to Indigenous Studies research. UC CIRI supports collaboration among UC's Indigenous and non-Indigenous staff and fosters local, national and international partnerships.

I have developed culturally appropriate and relevant curricula and teaching materials for diverse groups nationally and internationally. These skills will be drawn on to create a new teaching methodology for the above PNG and Pakistan projects.
I have over twenty years experience working with remote Indigenous adults, particularly women, across Australia, teaching linguistics skills to Indigenous Australians so they could document and maintain their own traditional languages. Building on this, I have worked in Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea and Pakistan.
