Research Biography

Since completion of her PhD at Flinders University in the area of food policy, Emma has developed a diverse set of qualitative and quantitative research skills through working in numerous research areas across Australia. Her PhD research spanned the topics of food labelling regulation, the sociology of trust and food systems, and utilized critical theoretical approaches such as Colebatch’s social constructionism and Bacchi’s policy analysis method.

Reflecting her undergraduate training in nutrition and dietetics, her current research focuses on public health nutrition in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Northern Territory and Queensland. She has also worked for Flinders University to run a democratic deliberation study around consumer trust in food systems, assist in the analysis and reporting of a qualitative four-nation international comparison study and consulted on several systematic reviews of literature.

Emma currently works as a Research Fellow at the University of Queensland and Research Associate at Monash University, and is an Academic Status holder with Flinders University.
