PhD Candidate, Australian National University, ACT
Chay is a PhD scholar from Alice Springs, NT. She completed her Master’s research on the impact of the Northern Territory Emergency Response on violence against women in Alice Springs’ Town Camps, then extended that research to look at Indigenous-led projects and interventions designed to prevent violence against women. She recently produced a Northern Territory–specific framework of principles of good practice to prevent violence against women, coupled with context-specific indicators to guide program design, delivery, and practice.
Chay has a background in international development and education. She has previously worked in projects on anti-trafficking, HIV testing and counselling, micro-finance and teaching colleges, and has worked in East Timor, Uganda, the UK, Thailand and China.
