Qualifications: PhD (Information Sciences) AUT, BInfSci (1st Class Hons) Massey University
Local Contexts Programme Lead - Te Kotahi Research Institute
I recognise the inherent sovereignty that Indigenous communities have over knowledge and data that comes from our people, lands, territories, airspace and waters. My research specialises in supporting Indigenous communities in managing intellectual and cultural property rights and data within information systems. This work is done through the Traditional Knowledge (TK) and Biocultural (BC) Labels by Local Contexts.
In 2009, I obtained my Doctor of Philosophy from the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, Auckland University of Technology (AUT). I have over 21 years background as an academic in information systems for Indigenous communities. In 2020, I came to work for the Te Kotahi Research Institute at the University of Waikato as the Local Contexts Programme Lead.
