Kimberly Lakin

PhD Candidate

Kimberley Lakin

Kimberly completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne in 2015, majoring in Microbiology and Immunology. During her Master of Public Health (MPH) at the University of Melbourne, Kimberley was taught and mentored by world-renowned global health experts and soon developed a passion for global health and, specifically, women’s health. The research project she completed during the MPH led to a PhD at the Nossal Institute for Global Health.

Kimberly's PHD research project: “Childbearing Indian Migrant Women’s Expectations and Experiences of Care: Implications for Health System Responsiveness” will explore Indian migrant women’s expectations and experiences of maternity care. It will use an intersectional and translocational framework to examine how these are shaped by women’s social locations. In doing so, it aims to identify the implications for improving the responsiveness of the Australian health system to migrants’ expectations of care.
