Biography

Debra Parkinson is an Adjunct Research Fellow with Monash University Disaster Resilience Initiative  (MUDRI), and researcher for Women’s Health Goulburn North East (WHGNE) and Women’s Health In the North (WHIN). Over the past two decades, she has researched diverse gendered issues, including intimate partner violence and rape, women’s unequal access to the legal system, and gendered discrimination through the superannuation system. Since 2009, her research has focused on environmental justice and gender and disaster.  In 2015, Debra was awarded the ‘Social and Political Sciences Graduate Research Thesis Award’ from Monash University for her PhD on increased domestic violence after the Victorian ‘Black Saturday’ bushfires. That same year, the Gender and Disaster Pod was established by MUDRI, WHGNE and WHIN with Debra as its manager. The collaborative has received state, national and international awards.
