Senior Research Fellow, Burnet Institute

Dr Julie Hennegan is a mixed-methods researcher specialising in adolescent and women’s health. She explores the social and environmental determinants of health, and the design and evaluation of complex social interventions.
Dr Hennegan's work focuses on menstrual health, sexual and reproductive health including rights, and gender dimensions of water, sanitation, and hygiene services. Building the evidence to understand and improve menstrual health, Dr Hennegan led the development of new measures to capture menstrual health needs. She has advanced the ongoing development of national indicators and measures to monitor menstrual health, and the application of evidence synthesis methods to progress theory and research.
Dr Hennegan joined the Burnet Institute in 2020, following a postdoctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She completed her MSc and DPhil at the University of Oxford.
