Research

Yuvisthi Naidoo is an early career researcher who has recently completed her PhD. Her thesis involved developing a set of metrics to measure the standard of living and well-being of individuals and applying the methodological framework to analysis of older Australians. She has experience working on Australian Research Council funded projects on poverty, deprivation and social exclusion in Australia, with the most research project involving cross-national comparison of deprivation amongst European countries. Before joining the SPRC, Yuvisthi worked for the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute on sustainable housing and support options for older homeless people and in research and marketing for the consumer goods conglomerate Unilever. Her broad research interest is Australian and comparative social disadvantage analysis including the concept and measurement of poverty, deprivation, living standards and wellbeing.
