Dr Tracey McIntosh has recently completed a term as Joint Director of the Centre of Research Excellence Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and is currently a sociologist at The University of Auckland.
Tracey has worked and researched in the Pacific, France and Central Africa. She has lectured at the University since 1999, and in 2004-2005 was a Fulbright Visiting Lecturer in New Zealand Studies at Georgetown, Washington D.C.
Her research has two distinct threads: one that looks at the addressing critical social issues that are significant to Māori and the nation (with a particular interest on the criminal justice system) and the other with an international focus on processes of marginalisation to vulnerable communities.
