Rebecca’s research takes place at the intersection of architecture, medicine, media, pedagogy and practice. She is a New Zealand registered architect with eight years’ experience across an array of project types including schools, primary healthcare, urban design, high-end and social housing. With a background in mental health facilities research (historic), her current work takes place within contemporary environments for oncology and palliative care, alongside general paediatric healthcare. For the previous two years’ she has co-ordinated the research design, data collection and analysis on the ARC-linkage funded project ‘Design for Wellbeing’ that investigates best practice in contemporary Australian paediatric hospitals. The common thread throughout her research is the pursuit of more rigorous methods to address complexities within the relationship between patient wellbeing, best practice models of care and the spatial practices determined by architectural form. Rebecca currently holds three University of Melbourne research grants exploring innovative research methods for the built environment (2017), best practice in studio teaching (2018) and innovative approaches to transdisciplinary education (2018).
