Biographical details

Jamee is a Research Associate with the Centre for Disability Research and Policy (CDRP), where she is currently working on an ARC research grant that will explore Young Australians with a disability experiences of discrimination in public places. Jamee is a qualitative social researcher with a disciplinary background in the social sciences, sociology and critical public health, with a particular interest in social determinants of health, marginalisation, agency and inclusion and citizenship. Jamee has worked across a number of diverse social research issues, including education, drug policy, viral hepatitis and disability, with a focus on participatory and action research methods. Jamee has also completed a PhD entitled Safety in the silence: hepatitis C risk and prevention in three networks of Australians’ who inject drugs. This study employed a social network analysis design, combining qualitative interviews and participatory social network mapping, to explore how social network factors influenced the sharing and reuse of injecting equipment within particular networks of people who inject drugs. During this time, Jamee also worked at the Centre for Social Research in Health (UNSW) where her main areas of research included viral hepatitis, illicit and injecting drug use among vulnerable youth populations including homeless and disenfranchised young people, and Indigenous youth.
