- South Australia
After 16 gap years, a variety of jobs, travel, and a child, I undertook my first degree in Edinburgh, Scotland and I graduated with a first-class honours degree in Health Science. I moved back to Australia and won a University of South Australia Postgraduate Award (USAPA) to study full time in the PhD program in Adelaide.
I have a strong and keen interest in health research, and in particular in the areas of ageing, digital health and complementary medicine. Complementary medicine is an enormous and growing industry that costs the consumer a significant amount of cash every time the purchase a product or see a practitioner. I am keen to dispel myths, and highlight where there is some benefit, or at least the start of proof, in science. I will live and die on the hill of rigour in research.
I am the founder, producer, and co-host of the Career Sessions podcast. We have published 8 podcasts, and have recorded 12 in total, so four more to launch. I have other ideas marinating including a follow-up careers session, and a completely new idea that plans to re-think the agenda in one of the topic areas I have outlined above. As a tutor, I have a lot of experience speaking to groups, and recording lectures online, and I have spoken at national and international conferences. I have also been invited to speak on radio and TV, based on my role as Chair of my daughter’s school governing council.
