Disability Fellowships

Congratulations to the recipients of the Melbourne Disability Institute's Disability Research Fellowships!

We are thrilled to announce the recipients of MDI's inaugural disability research fellowship program, Dr Raelene West and Dr Yi Yang.

We are looking forward to working together with Rae and Yi over the next three years to develop a multi year, multi project program of work across both the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the Australian Disability Strategy. They will join a community of academics and experts working together at the University of Melbourne to strengthen the evidence base and inform future research, policy and practice in this dynamic area.

Both Rae and Yi bring to MDI a wide range of experiences and outstanding skills and expertise. We are very lucky to have them join the team!
