Helen Moewaka Barnes is an Associate Professor and Director of the Whariki Research Group, one of two teams comprising the SHORE and Whariki Research Centre, located with Massey University in Auckland. The research is multi-disciplinary, undertaking a mix of strategic and applied research with public good and Kaupapa Maori foci; we are particularly involved in examining inequities and developing solutions. Growing capacity in Maori communities and in Maori research is a priority area. This underpins the growth and development of Whariki and our diverse and numerous collaborations with whanau, hapu, iwi and other communities and organisations.
