Rachel works between housing and energy poverty research, with a particular emphasis on working with the public housing community. Her Master’s thesis explored the experiences of public housing tenants during COVID-19 and the public health and social measures enacted in response. Alongside her focus on housing equity Rachel has a deep interest in communication, and how we most effectively communicate our results and projects with participants, community groups, industry, and policy makers alike.
She works as an Assistant Research Fellow with the University of Otago, Wellington between He Kāinga Oranga/Housing and Health and the New Zealand Centre for Sustainable Cities research programmes.
