GIER is home to diverse academics and HDR scholars, exploring multiple issues relating to diverse learners in diverse contexts.  In this short video, our inspiring HDR colleague Areej Yousef shares an introduction to her research exploring the experiences of teenage girls who arrive in Australian schools as refugees or forced migrants from Syria and Iraq.

Areej’s supervisors for her PhD research are Dr Tasha Riley and Professor Leonie Rowan. We are proud to have Areej in our Institute.
