Amanda is a Research Fellow in Public Health. She is an experienced primary school teacher and holds a Masters in Public Health from the University of Adelaide and a PhD from Deakin University.

Currently, she manages an NHMRC funded project focused on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children's ear health. This research will determine the current hearing healthcare pathway patterns of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and how these impact on access to care, delivery of treatment, and physical and emotional wellbeing; and then codesign, implement, and evaluate a multifaceted strategy to address hearing health surveillance and management for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

Previously, she was project manager for an NHMRC funded project focused on how children’s daily activity patterns (e.g. watching television and playing sport) and diet differ between in-school and summer holiday periods and how these differences may affect their health and fitness.
