Research assistant

As a research assistant on the Workforce Planning team, my role is to support the team’s research activity towards producing high quality resources to support the workforce. Previously, I’ve supported the team in the More than Numbers workforce stocktake, and more recently, I’ve been involved in research projects related to Te Pou’s Reducing seclusion and restraint initiative. In my everyday work, I strongly value being part of Te Pou’s highly passionate and people-centred culture.

I have a Master of Science degree in cognitive psychology from the University of Auckland. Previously, I have worked in roles that provide support for children with ASD in Auckland and Vancouver. During my time in Vancouver, I also had a delightful experience being involved in a brain injury clinical trial.
