Me in B&W

Tamara Agnew

I am the founder, producer, and co-host of the Career Sessions podcast. I love research and I am very curious about what is going on in the world around me. My friends would describe me as strong, friendly, inventive, altruistic, and intelligent. I am a tutor and researcher in health sciences, a mother of two very cool daughters, a wife of a Scottish husband, co-director of Alui Altum Consultants in Adelaide, advisory board member of the Tisserand Institute, Chair of my daughter’s School Governing Council, and now I can add podcaster to my list of career highlights! I grew up in NSW, mostly on the Central Coast and Sydney, lived in Scotland for ten years where I got to itch my travel bugs, and am now based in Adelaide, trying to launch Tamara Inc. (That is not the real name….)

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.
