Prof Maui Hudson
Maui affiliates to Te Whakatohea, Nga Ruahine, and Te Mahurehure iwi. He is a member of the Whakatohea Māori Trust Board and Director on two of its companies, Te Pou Oranga o Whakatohea, and Eastern Seafarms Ltd. Maui is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies at the University of Waikato. His research is interdisciplinary in nature focusing on the application of mātauranga Māori (indigenous knowledge) to decision-making across a range of contexts from new technologies to health, the environment to innovation. Access to data and governance of data are key issues emerging from his research and led to his involvement in Te Mana Raraunga, the Māori Data Sovereignty Network.
