Tīria Pereti Pehi (Ngāpuhi and Āti Hau nui-ā-paparangi) is an assistant research fellow with the He Kāinga Oranga/ Housing and Health Research Programme. Tīria has come from Whangarei, having worked in the community supporting people in serious housing need through emergency housing and transitional housing. Working at the face of homelessness has fueled her passions for creating better housing outcomes for not only Māori but for all people of Aotearoa.
With a BA in social science from AUT University, Tīria hopes to further her studies with Otago University. Her research interests are in homelessness, mental health, Māori identity, institutional racism, the environment, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its applications to wider society.
