Alexandra Devine is a Senior Research Fellow with the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, The University of Melbourne. For the past 18 years her local and international research and technical assistance has focused on disability, employment, mental health, and disability-inclusive international development. Within this, Alex has a specific focus on promoting the rights of groups more likely to experience disadvantage within systems and societies including, women, children, First Nations and people with psychosocial disability. Her current research focuses on improving outcomes for these cohorts within disability systems including Australia’s Disability Employment Services and the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Dr Devine has previously led and co-led disability-inclusive development research for Australian and International Governments and non-government organisations with, for example, a focus on measuring disability and evaluating inclusion within development research and programming; sexual and reproductive health of women with disabilities in the Philippines; and documenting the life experiences of children with disability in Cambodia. Alexandra continues to provide technical assistance to an Australian Government funded Skills for Employment Program in Kiribati.
