Biography

 Professor Walter has a long pre-academic career in the public service, working in the Department of Social Security and other Federal Government Departments from 1980 until 1999. During this time she obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Social Welfare) from Charles Sturt University in 1994, a Bachelor of Social Work ( 1st Class Honours) from the University of Tasmania in 1998.  Professor Walter was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (Sociology) from the University of Tasmania in 2003 and joined the University of Tasmania as an academic in 2002, first in Aboriginal Studies, and then in 2004 moved to the School of Social Sciences.

Research Themes

Maggie's research aligns with the University's research theme of Creativity, Culture and Society; Better Health; as well as Data, Knowledge and Decisions and these themes are reflected in her record of research activity. Over the past 10 years she has been a CI on six Category 1 Research Grants and numerous Category 2 and 3 Consultancies, covering a broad range of social issues, mainstream and Indigenous related. What all these projects have in common is a commitment to provide the evidence frame to support social and public policy change.

Maggie's recent research track record includes an ARC Discovery Linkage Grant (with Larrakia Nation) investigating Aboriginal perspectives on race relations in Darwin. This project has three phases, a face book page Telling it Like It is Darwin, which provide a forum for Aboriginal people to post their responses to items and issues of import; an in-depth interview phase where a group of 40 Aboriginal people have been interviewed extensively on their perspectives of living life as an Aboriginal person in Darwin and a survey phase of 400 respondents, matched socio-demographically to Darwin's Aboriginal population, based around the major findings in Phase 1 and 2. The results from this research will help foster reconciliation and improved race relations in Darwin.Maggie is also passionate about building the knowledge base of Indigenous statistical methodologies. Her bookIndigenous statistics: a quantitative methodology (with Chris Andersen, Left Coast Press 2013) was the first book, globally to address this topic, and she has run numerous workshops on Indigenous statistics, most recently in collaboration with the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Department of Social Services (2015) to build the statistical literacy and capacity  for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers.

Improving indigenous health and wellbeing over the family life course (2016 - 2020)$250,000
Description
Indigenous health inequality is a major social and economic problem in Australia. This project compares the impact of the family life course on the health and wellbeing of Indigenous and non-Indigenous mothers and children. It uses survey data that follows them over time to: 1) identify family structures that enhance or harm health and wellbeing, and; 2) track changes in health and wellbeing before, during and after family transitions (i.e. births, relationship changes). In collaboration with the Department of Social Services the project aims to improve the policy relevant evidence base on the determinants of Indigenous health and wellbeing to enable the development of effective policy to reduce Indigenous health inequalities.
