Research interests

Social Work & Sustainable Development

I am interested in community development for environmental justice and environmental rights, resilience building in overcoming environmental problems, youth movements for sustainable development, green care (animal and gardening in social work), and eco-social work approaches to social work education and practice

Computer-assisted Qualitative Data Analysis

I have a particular interest in developing analytical models for quantitative analysis from qualitative data (‘big data’). I have mostly used ATLAS-ti for my publications on models related to Abductive Thematic Network Analysis and Deductive Critical Discourse Analysis. I have a good knowledge of Nvivo. I can also manage SPSS (quantitative data analysis software) for testing models from qualitative data analysis.

Current research projects

  • Ecosocial work with Coastal Communities
  • Youth and Sustainable Development in Mauritius (Quantitative Research)
  • Upcycling and Youth Empowerment
  • Companion Animals in Social Work Practice
