Research interests

Juliet's research interests lie in the areas of comparative politics as well as racial and ethnic politics in Australia and Southeast Asia. Juliet began her studies in Asian Studies (Chinese) where she learnt to speak and write in Mandarin and Cantonese in Beijing and Guangzhou. She has also studied, worked and raised children in Yogyakarta in Indonesia. Her experiences in Asia helped shape her current academic research interests on the social and political inclusion of migrants and ethnic minorities in Western societies. Juliet has held visiting scholar positions at Stanford University (2010) and Oxford university (2014). Juliet is currently a coordinator on two major Australian Research Council projects. She is the principal investigator for a comparative research project on the political integration of migrant and ethnic minorities in Australia and the United States. She is also an investigator on a project which examines irregular migration pathways across the Asia Pacific. Juliet has a particular interest in understanding the individual, institutional and contextual factors that hinder the social and political inclusion of migrant and ethnic minority groups in western societies.
