I have researched and worked in the area of research engagement, translation and impact, with a focus on strategic policy and program development and impact assessment, in both the higher education and public sectors.
My current role at QUT is focused on assessing the role that open access plays in the engagement to impact pathway, with a specific focus on impact in health policy and practice.
I completed a PhD focused on translation of research to public health policy and practice at Monash University in 2013. Since then I have worked in various academic and professional roles in the higher education sector, including as Research Translation Manager at Monash University Institute for Safety Compensation and Recovery Research and Research Impact Officer at UQ in the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research).
Prior to undertaking a PhD I worked as Strategic Policy and Project Officer for a Victorian State Government public health agency.
