Kiara Minto is a Research Assistant at the Centre for Social Impact UWA and recently submitted her PhD thesis in social psychology at the University of Queensland.
Kiara is passionate about targeting injustice and inequality in our society and believes strongly in the application of high-quality research to combat social issues with evidence-based policy and practice. In line with these values, she focused her PhD research on understanding responses to domestic abuse.
This passion for social justice has also led her to her current position with CSI UWA, where she is involved in projects furthering our understanding of homelessness, mental health access, and domestic abuse intervention strategies.
In addition to her passion for applied research to target inequality and disadvantage, Kiara also highly values good research methodology and statistics. During her PhD, she began teaching statistics, which she continues to teach to undergraduate students.Back to Our People
