Research Biography

Dr Noemi Tari-Keresztes completed her master's degree in sociology through the University of Szeged Hungary (2004) and her PhD degree in psychology from the Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary (2009). She also holds a Williams Life Skills (WLS) Facilitator (2006) certificate and participated in short courses such as Trauma Informed Care (AMSANT), Suicide prevention (Wesley Lifeforce), Cultural Awareness (Menzies School of Health Research), and Healing Trauma and Addiction (Wholehearted/Dr Gabor Mate).

Currently, she is a Research Fellow (Lived Experience) at Flinders University, Rural and Remote Health – NT, College of Medicine & Public Health. Previously, she was a Research Fellow at Menzies School of Health Research (Menzies), Alcohol, Other Drugs and Gambling (AODG). Prior to this role, she was a Research Support Officer II. at the Centre for Resilience and Socio-Emotional Health at the University of Malta and a Research Support Officer I. at the Islands and Small States Institute at the University of Malta. Her previous working history also includes posts as (1) assistant professor at the Institute of Physical Education and Sport Sciences (University of Szeged, Hungary), (2) visiting researcher at the Centre for Social Research in Health (UNSW, Sydney, Australia), and (3) postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Physical Education and Sport Sciences (University of Szeged, Hungary). She voluntarily contributed her time as a PhD supervisor at the University of Pecs, Hungary, and she was an examiner for master's theses at Charles Darwin University (CDU).

She gained most of her experience in quantitative studies, where she was responsible for project and data management including data collection, coding, cleaning, statistical analysis, publication, and knowledge translation. In the last couple of years, Noemi has expanded her experience in qualitative research methods, so she became experienced enough to apply mixed methodology in her studies. She has contributed to multiple Australian Government, Primary Health Network (PHN), Non-Government Organisation (NGO) and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funded socio-emotional wellbeing (SEWB) research and evaluation projects that extend into areas relating to community mental health, peer education, peer recovery, alcohol and other drug use, gambling, education, workforce capacity building, and other Indigenous-focused research contexts. She has been listed as a Co-Investigator on several research projects, amounting to nearly $2 Million. The outcomes of her research contributed to the AODG team being awarded a 2019 National AOD Award for Excellence and Innovation (Research) by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation. These have all been focused on improving the health outcomes of highly vulnerable populations. Recently, she was successful in securing research funding from the Alcohol and Drug Foundation, Menzies School of Health Research and the National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre. Over the past years, Noemi has been awarded multiple grants and awards like Scholarship of Republic (Hungary), Hungarian Academy of Sciences Award, Balassi Tutorial Fellowship, Hungarian Sport Science Association Publication Award, Magyary Zoltán Postdoctoral Fellowship, Campus Hungary Long-term Mobility Fellowship and several travel grants and conference awards. She has published several papers in international and Hungarian journals, international and Hungarian academic book chapters, books and serves as an ad hoc reviewer for international and Hungarian journals. She has been recently invited as a Review Editor on the Editorial Board of Public Mental Health (specialty section of Frontiers in Public Health, Frontiers in Psychiatry and Frontiers in Sociology).
