Martina Hutton

Senior Lecturer in Marketing

Themes: Thriving communities, Reducing health inequalities

Expertise: Consumer poverty, social stress complexities of economic/social disadvantage, consumption adequacy and wellbeing, community-based research methodologies

For 14 years I have worked as a researcher with diverse communities experiencing a range of intersecting inequalities, specifically focusing on deprived consumption, economic and social exclusion. My experience includes partnering with national and international stakeholders who represent groups experiencing hunger, poverty and post-prison restrictions.

I have published widely on the issues of consumer poverty, wellbeing and marketplace exclusion and have expertise in a range of social justice research methods (eg critical PAR, emancipatory praxis). Currently I am working on a funded impact study with a cross sector multi-stakeholder initiative, examining a range of sustainable food well-being solutions designed by the community for the community.
