Research interests

A major focus of Dr Nevile’s research is the impact of funding and performance frameworks on third sector service delivery agencies and their clients, most recently in the area of disability employment where she has been lead chief investigator and sole chief investigator in two Australian Research Council Linkage projects. 

A second strand of Dr Nevile’s research is focused on values – in particular, the values held by those with experience of poverty, and how these can inform policy and implementation issues.  This research has led to an edited book on human rights and social policy that explores the links between international and European Union human rights frameworks and service delivery on the ground.  

I have just published an audiobook - What evidence do policymakers need to make robust decisions? - on the science communication channel SciPod.
