University of Auckland professors Linda Waimarie Nikora and Merryn Tawhai and Angus Macfarlane from the University of Canterbury are among 20 new fellows elected to the Academy of the Royal Society Te Apārangi.

Professor Nikora from Ngāi Tūhoe has led important research investigations into Māori health, development, culture change and resilience, death, indigenous psychology, Māori sexuality, and media representations.

Her research into the development of a kaupapa Māori curriculum fundamentally changed ways of working, researching, and training for indigenous psychologists worldwide, and she has grown a new generation of Māori psychologists.

Professor Tawhai is a world expert in ways to test for respiratory disease.

Professor Macfarlane of Te Arawa has changed theory and practice in Māori education.

His Educultural Wheel model is extensively in schools in New Zealand, and his He Awa Whiria framework underpins Superu’s research on whānau and families.

Another new fellow is University of Auckland law professor David Williams, who is recognised nationally and internationally for his originality of thinking in the areas of constitutional law, colonial legal history and the Treaty of Waitangi.
