Alex has strong data analysis and research experience with a keen interest in public health, community care and mental health.
A recent addition to the AHA team, Alex graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2015 with a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours Class I). Her honours thesis explored the cognitive mechanisms underlying stereotyping and intergroup conflict via a classical conditioning framework. Alex also graduated from the University of Sydney in 2013 with a Bachelor of International and Global Studies.
Prior to joining AHA, Alex worked at the University of Newcastle in the Social/Cognitive Psychology lab alongside world class researchers, undertaking complex research into the psychology of intergroup conflict and social behaviour. During her undergraduate studies, Alex worked in a private psychology practice and gained valuable skills relating to the treatment and diagnosis of mental illness in both children and adults, grief and loss counselling, and mental health promotion.
Since joining AHA, Alex has utilised her research, data, writing and administrative skills to participate in a range of projects within the evaluation team. Alex is currently involved in the evaluation of the Tasmanian Health Assistance Package (THAP) projects: Better Access to Palliative Care (BAPC) and Innovating Care in Emergency Departments (ICED).
