Alex is currently completing his PhD with the University of South Australia. His research is funded by the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre (CRC), and looks at youth mental health and help-seeking. His undergraduate psychology degree was supported by a sub-major in sociology, a study path that has informed his research and evaluation practice in his recent consultation roles.

While undertaking his PhD, Alex was appointed to several research assistant and teaching roles in the School of Education. He’s worked on diverse projects ranging from school and cyberbullying, children’s online privacy, young people’s wellbeing and help-seeking, and cross-cultural bullying studies.

Towards the end of his PhD, Alex worked as a research consultant at ConNetica Consulting, where he specialised in mental health, suicide prevention and wellbeing consultations with a diverse client group. His work encompassed geospatial mapping of mental health, alcohol and other drug, and homelessness services across the country, and supporting the Innovation in Mental Wealth 2016 CRC bid. He also worked on a comprehensive review of suicide and suicide prevention services for Australian Defence Force members, veterans and their families.

Alex joined AHA in 2017 as a data analyst and consultant with the evaluation and advisory team. He brings strong quantitative and qualitative analysis skills, with specialised experience in lifespan mental health and wellbeing research, health system planning and design, and health service delivery.
