Associate Joanne Evans is an archival and recordkeeping researcher and educator in the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University. She is currently Director of Graduate Research for the Department of Human Centred Computing, and as a member of Digital Equity co-ordinates the Records Continuum Research Group. Through an ARC Future Fellowship (2015-18), Connecting the Disconnected: Co-designing Integrated and Inclusive Recordkeeping and Archival Networks, she has established the interdisciplinary Archives and the Rights of the Child Research Program to address the lifelong identity, memory and accountability needs of childhood out of home care.
