Change the world

Faculty Researcher of the Year - Education

Prof Mathabo Khau

Intersections of gender, sexuality, gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS, and how they play out in exclusionary practices form part of Prof Khau’s research areas.  Even though women and girls outnumber men globally, they face disease and poverty and their representation in decision-making bodies is also still negligible.  Prof Khau uses participatory research methodologies and ‘research as social change’ framing to build inclusive and humane societies for equal opportunities.
