Adrienne is a Research Assistant in the Child Health, Development and Education Team who primarily works on evaluation projects commissioned by Australian government departments. She works collaboratively with government, community, and other stakeholders to support the design of programs and services that improve outcomes for children and families. Adrienne’s role focuses on conducting stakeholder consultations and evidence reviews to ensure programs are evidence-based, locally relevant, and fit-for-purpose.

Recent projects Adrienne has worked on include:

  • A review of inclusive preschool program options for children with disability and complex needs.
  • A process and outcomes evaluation of a state-wide online maths tutoring initiative to accelerate student learning outcomes.

Previously, Adrienne worked as a project coordinator in the non-profit sector facilitating service design projects in aged care, disability, and early childhood. She has also worked on grant funded academic projects, which led to changes at the policy and program level and were presented at international conferences.
