Dr Gauri Nandedkar is a researcher in the Affordable Housing for Generations National Science Challenge Team. Her work focuses on discourse analysis, science and policy interface, and how the way we talk about issues potentially affects policy outcomes. Gauri worked with the National Science Challenge Team in its first phase in the component ‘The Architecture of Decision-making’, exploring how politicians speak about the housing crisis, the most common narratives in the public arena, and what the effects and implications of public discourses are on housing policy. Gauri is also a research associate in the National Institute of Demographic and Economic Analysis (NIDEA) at the University of Waikato, researching trans-Tasman migration. This research project focuses on the aspirations and desires of New Zealanders working and living in Australia.
