Yue Gao

Yue coordinates MCWH’s “Gambling Awareness Project (GAP)”. She obtained both Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Journalism in China and PhD in International Studies in Australia. Her interest is in exploring how the structural inequality has shaped the social discourses on responsible self and influence people’s, especially women’s, perceptions towards their bodies and sexualities, healthy choices and activities. As a newly arrived migrant to Australia, she is passionate about understanding how people’s migration and transnational experience might shape their health behaviours and hopes to improve the immigrant and refugee women’s health and wellbeing through her community work and research.
