This PhD focuses on the largely quantitative scientific disciplines of epidemiology, evidence-based practice and evaluation and their longstanding histories with Aboriginal people.

It will examine how the centering of Western knowledge and values in these disciplines is scientifically flawed and that more robust quantitative sciences can and do come about through the leadership and full inclusion of Aboriginal people and organisations.
