Her research analyses the intra-household distribution of health and education in developing countries, and its implications for the household’s children and the elderly. This research has led to her success in competitive grants from the Australian Research Council and AusAID, and collaborative research with international organisations such as IFPRI (USA), ICASEPS (Indonesia) and TISS (India). Her research has been influential in the Australian policy debate on child care and female employment choices, and was cited in the media, by the Commonwealth Treasury and OECD report on childcare. Papers from her research have been published both in Australian policy journals such as the Australian Economic Papers and Australian Journal of Labour Economics, as well as in international journals such as Health Economics, Education Economics, Research in Labour Economics and Oxford Development Studies.
