Dr Alana Papageorgiou

Dr Alana Papageorgiou is a Research Officer with the ARC Life Course Centre. In this role, she is currently working with the Centre’s Knowledge Transfer Portfolio to identify and promote innovative ways to ensure the Centre’s research is disseminated and translated for policy and practice to the broader public and key stakeholder groups such as government, business, not-for-profit organisations, and those experiencing deep and persistent disadvantage.

Her previous role with Telethon Kids was with the AAMRI Research Impact Working Group Project, which developed a research impact framework to enhance the Australian medical research sector’s ability to translate research and knowledge into impacts that benefit the community. She has also worked on various projects within the Health Promotion and Education team, with experience working across school-based health promotion intervention projects related to mental health, bullying prevention, and technology use and online behaviours in children and adolescents.

She is currently completing her PhD in Public Health at the University of Western Australia exploring adolescent girls’ social media use and its influence on their mental health and support needs.
