Dr Yalmambirra

Senior Fellow Indigenous Knowledges

Gulbali Institute


In my role as a Research Fellow for the Gulbali Institute, I am currently researching Student Experiences inherent in their time with Charles Sturt University. My research begins with ‘Past Students’ as a driver for the research and will then look at the experiences of ‘current students’. The information gathered may enable Charles Sturt to build on, and improve, current relationships between the student, Charles Sturt University and Industries.
