She is an Accredited Practising Dietitian who came to Monash with over 20 years experience working as a public health and community nutritionist across a range of settings. It was through this experience that she developed her interest in community and household food insecurity and led her to her PhD exploring the existence and experience of food insecurity in low-to middle income Melbourne households. Sue’s research focus continues in the area of the existence and experiences of food insecurity and responses to prevent and pathways out of food insecurity. She is the convenor of the Australian Household Food Security Research Collaboration, a member of Dietitians Australia and the Public Health Association of Australia.
This webinar will share an aspect of the food security research that Sue is currently undertaking in Cardinia Shire Council, a local Government area in Melbourne. This research project 'Harnessing community expertise in designing decision support systems to understand and act on food insecurity in local government settings in the UK and Australia' is in collaboration with Dr Martine Barons, from the University of Warwick and is funded by a Monash Warwick Alliance Research Catalyst Fund
