Alexandra joined the Nossal Institute in 2005, through the Victorian Public Health Training Scheme. Initially working in the mental health and HIV area, she’s been involved in disability inclusive development research for the past eight years.
Alexandra is part of the Rapid Assessment of Disability (RAD) team – developing a toolkit to measure the effectiveness of development activities which target or include people with disabilities. The RAD has been used in a other research projects Alexandra is involved in, including the W-DARE project that aims to improve access to quality sexual and reproductive health for women with disabilities in the Philippines.
Alexandra is undertaking a PhD investigating the life circumstances of job seekers with psychosocial disability. She hopes her research can improve the lives of persons with disabilities so they can participate in their communities on an equal basis.
