Associate Professor Margot Rawsthorne has lectured in community development with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney since 2005. Her research has focused on the experience of inequality, particularly shaped by gender, location, housing and sexuality. Since 2017 she has collaborated with social work and social policy academics, including Professor Amanda Howard, on disaster preparedness through community-led action. Working alongside community members, organisations, emergency services and governments the Disaster Research Collective is building a strong evidence base to support practical shared responsibility.
