Biography

Dr Maggie Kirkman is a Senior Research Fellow at The Jean Hailes Research Unit, Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. She is a Member of the Australian Psychological Society.

Maggie's research has predominantly concerned psychosocial aspects of reproduction, including infertility, donor-assisted conception, teenage pregnancy, elective abortion, and breast cancer during the reproductive years, as well as the socially-situated, gendered body. She is especially interested in applying qualitative methodology.

Maggie's early career included teaching hearing-impaired children and children with various other severe and profound disabilities; these experiences have informed her research.

Research students supervised by Maggie have published on topics such as young people using telemedicine for sexual health, HIV-positive women and motherhood, representations of pregnant women in Australian women's magazines, being an XY female, and discourses of caesarean sections in medicine, midwifery and feminism.
