I am a lecturer at the National University of Samoa (NUS) in the area of sociology. My research interests are in Development studies and sociological theories within the Pacific area. In development studies, i have done research for my Masters in aid project management and implementation looking at relationships between consultants and counterparts.
Research interests are mainly in aid project implementation and effectiveness. Other research interests are in health and development in terms of sexual reproductive health amongst women and children and its relationship to development agendas in developing countries.
