My work in health communication is located at the intersection of communication studies and public health, an emerging and developing field in Australia that acts as a bridge between medical bodies, public health authorities and the wider public.

My most significant contribution lies in the integration of multidisciplinary scientific enquiry with practical applications in policy and intervention work. A notable feature of my research is forging novel approaches of socio-cultural understanding of health in population and media, and connecting health maintenance entities with their publics.

I have founded a cross-disciplinary research team (health humanities) in the Charles Perkins Centre

In both my funded and unfunded research, I see my most significant contribution in the integration of scientific enquiry with practical applications in policy and intervention work. Collaborative in disposition, my work connecting research in universities with interested partners has begun to arouse national and international attention.
