Rebecca’s research is interdisciplinary and draws on a range of methods and methodologies to address issues of cultural diversity in education, health, and early childhood settings. Prior to coming to the UK, Rebecca worked on a range of community-based participaroty research projects in Canada, as a research assistant, project manager and principal investigator.
