Dr Aryati (Ary) Yashadhana is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation (CHETRE). Dr Yashadhana’s work focuses on socioeconomic, cultural and political determinants of health, intersectional health equity (gender, race, class), and international development. Her research has largely taken place in collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians (NSW and Northern Territory), and in low and middle income countries internationally (Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, South East Asia, Pacific) with a focus on analyzing the cultural dimensions of access in the context of eye health and chronic disease. Dr Yashadhana specialises in qualitative and participatory methodologies, with a particular interest in applying decolonizing, critical race, and critical realist theories, to understand the way marginalised peoples and cultures interface with dominant systems and structures in the realm of public health. She also teaches undergraduate Development Studies in the School of Social Sciences at UNSW.
