Karina Davis is a Research Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education.

In her work with the CEIEC, Karina leads the research theme ‘Identities, equity and pedagogies for social change’ and has been actively involved in leading and working with both young children and adults in projects focused on a range of topics including identity, curriculum, and policy.
