Senior Research Assistant


Emma Riseley is a Senior Research Assistant at the Centre for Social Impact (CSI) Swinburne. Emma graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2015 with a BA and continued on to do her Honours year (Psychological Sciences) at Australian Catholic University. Prior to joining CSI Swinburne at the start of 2018, Emma volunteered as a well-being program facilitator where she aimed to support and foster self-efficacy and self-advocacy in others through a person-centred approach. 

Since joining CSI Swinburne, Emma has supported the maintenance of Map for Impact, an identification and mapping project of Victoria's social enterprises, and assisted on research that reviews whether and how employment-focused social enterprises redress disadvantage. She is currently part of The Swinburne Social Startup Studio team, which seeks to support early-stage social enterprise via an action research agenda.

More generally, Emma supports the CSI Swinburne research team with ethics applications, mixed methods data analysis, and general project assistance. Emma is interested in research that aims to enhance well-being and social inclusion, and research translation that encourages accessible and open knowledge-sharing.
