Dr Emma Hughes Ma

Research Development Advisor

Research and Enterprise

Research Development Advisor

CoHSS - Deputy PVC's Office

I am a Research Advisor within the Research and Researcher Development Cluster.  This group includes the Research Development Advisors, Researcher Development Coordinator, Research Ethics Advisors and the Graduate Research School. I have been part of the team for the last five years and have particular experience in supporting health research funding bids. 

I have coordinated the health portfolio for the last five years, supporting funding bid submissions to the Health Research Council and other health funders.  I am now working part-time to support the team whilst undertaking my PhD study in the Institute of Development Studies at Massey. This looks at the role of tourism corporations undertaking community development in the Pacific.

Prior to the role of Research Advisor I worked for the Centre for Indigenous Governance and Development in the College of Business, and before coming to Massey worked for a women's rights centre in Egypt and a research centre within Development Studies at the University of Manchester.
