Personal profile

Social Scientist Dr Helen Masterman-Smith is a sociologist primarily researching questions of social, labour and ecological justice, and their interconnectedness. This work is based in the sociology of work and environmental sociology/political economy fields. Much of her career has concentrated on the former, culminating in the coordination of an ARC Linkage Grant on low pay and working poverty in Australia. From 2006, Helen's research activities have increasingly centred on the nexus between labour and environmental issues, from a social science perspective. Her most recent research has explored labour dimensions of climate change including 'just transition' practices, labour market inequalities in the green economy, and metabolic rift analysis as it pertains to the animal industrial-complex. Currently, she is leading a DEWHA project investigating the sustainability education needs of healthcare workers.
