I am a health sociologist who examines the links between health choices and broader social and political ideas. I have studied the choice to be screened, the choices that farmers make to try and stay healthy, and the choice made by people with chronic illness to participate in chronic disease self management research. My current ARC Discovery Project examines how people exercise choice in the contemporary Australian health care system.
I am a member of The Australian Sociological Association (TASA).

Alicia Evans is a Lacanian psychoanalyst and nurse academic, with a particular interest in anxiety, sexuality and group dynamics. In her work, she explores the way in which psychoanalytic and Foucauldian theories can provide new insights into how health care is both practised and governed. She has an abiding interest in politics and how the personal shapes the political, be that in relation to the group, the hospital or the nation.
Alicia teaches organisational culture and qualitative research methodology. She supervises a number of Higher Degree by Research students who are undertaking qualitative studies in the health field. In her current research, she is investigating how sexuality is governed in a long-stay psychiatric service.
In addition to her academic work, Alicia practises psychoanalysis and is the Secretary of The Freudian School of Melbourne, a school of Lacanian psychoanalysis, where she gives regular seminars. Prior to doing her PhD and joining the academy, Alicia worked in mental health institutions, hospitals, prisons and with the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist.

Dr Justin Barker is an urban anthropologist whose research has examined youth homelessness, homeless fathers, intergenerational drug use, alcohol related violence, normalisation of alcohol and other drug use amongst subcultures of young people, and tobacco management in the community sector. He has been the project manager and lead researcher on numerous research projects that have aimed to directly inform policy and practice.
Prior to his career as a researcher Justin was a youth worker in Adelaide and Canberra working with homeless young people. This experience led onto his PhD that examined the lives of homeless young people in Canberra, providing ethnographic insights into the conditions of youth homelessness. He has developed and implemented a range of qualitative research methodologies aimed at doing research with young people and vulnerable population groups. Justin has a strong background in social theory which he uses to add meaning and insight into his research and draws on research findings to contribute to social theory.
