Kelum Palipane

 

Dr Kelum Palipane is Lecturer in Architectural Design at the Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning, University of Melbourne. Her research uses creative ethnographic methods to explore migrant experience and identity, examining how unprogrammed placemaking practices can inform design.

Kelum is a graduate of architecture with experience in several practices based in Melbourne and overseas. She obtained her PhD by Creative Works from the University of Melbourne in 2016. Kelum's doctoral research involved developing a design framework that would help retain and foster the diverse placemaking practices of multicultural communities in neighbourhood regeneration projects. Kelum has teaching experience in several undergraduate and graduate subjects. Through her teaching she aims to explore the pedagogical implications of multicultural teaching - learning strategies that would make students aware of the impact of varying epistemes in knowledge creation and learning.
