Senior Research Fellow, Deakin University

I am a prolific early career researcher having being awarded my PhD in March 2017 and in just two years have led funded research (>$350K) and broadly disseminated research findings by 17 published peer-reviewed papers; five papers and a book chapter in press for 2020; two media releases; 13 national and 11 international conference papers. My h-index is 7, and I have a total of 280 citations to 28 publications in Google Scholar. My publications span multiple academic disciplines (e.g., Education, Medicine, Sports Science and Health) with the majority (12) published in high-quality journals (Q1), and my research has been cited by researchers in 31 countries. My experience in rigorous interdisciplinary research design, in conjunction with my expertise in teaching in schools (over 10 years of secondary and primary teaching) and in teacher education, brings a diverse and unique skill set capable of uniting the fields of education and health research.
