Michele is Professor of Disability and Rehabilitation Research with Griffith University and the Division of Rehabilitation, Metro South Health, in Queensland Australia. She is an internationally recognised social work and health services research academic with a strong interdisciplinary track record in rehabilitation, disability services, and primary health care research. Her research focuses primarily on how policy and service systems impact the experiences of service users and the work of service providers, and how service delivery innovations translate into local contexts. Since completion of her PhD in 2001 at the University of Queensland, she has held a number of national and international research academic positions, which include the Social Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of York in the UK. Michele has a thorough understanding of the interaction of research, policy and practice and importance of knowledge translation based on years of applied and practice-based research within health, rehabilitation and disability systems.
