Senior Research Officer
College of Medicine and Public Health
Thank you for visiting my Flinders University homepage. I'm an early-career health behavioural scientist, and public health and implementation science student. I started PhD studies (College of Medicine and Public Health) in June 2022, focused on lung cancer screening, smoking, and stigma.
I also work as a Senior Research Officer in the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA), one of the key national research centres in the alcohol and other drugs field, with a key focus on workforce development. I currently contribute to NCETA's broad programs of AOD research, primarily in prevention and early intervention, especially in public health messaging to reduce parental supply of alcohol to adolescents.
I have previously held behavioural science research roles in the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer, as well as the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, Online Education Services, and the universities of Adelaide and South Australia. My broad experience has been focused on better understanding health and mental health needs – particularly for those affected by cancer, cardiovascular disease, and AOD use – and in developing and evaluating intervention aimed at higher-risk (occupational, sociodemographic) population subgroups.
I bring a deep personal commitment to equity in science, and to doing rigorous, ethical research with strong consumer engagement that can contribute to reducing health disparities. My teaching interests extend to psychological measurement and research methodology for the behavioural sciences, where I'm highly experienced in course coordination, digital learning, and student insights/analytics research.
For anything else, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
