Gina Netto is a Reader in the School of the Built Environment, Heriot Watt University, specialising in ethnicity and social justice.  Her research interests span a broad range of policy areas including poverty, employment, housing, health and social care. Her theoretical and empirical work focuses on deepening understanding of the ways in which ethnicity interacts with other aspects of identity and is shaped by both social relationships and socio-economic inequalities.

Prior to her current post, Gina worked as Lecturer and then as Senior Lecturer in the same institution (2006-2012). Before that, and following completion of her PhD in Applied Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh , she held research related posts  (1995-2005), including Director of the Scottish Ethnic Minorities Research Unit in the School of Planning and Housing at Edinburgh College of Art . From 2002 to 2007, she served as Commissioner with the Mental Welfare Commission and as chair of its Equality and Diversity Working Group.
