Dr Clare Hume

Lecturer

School of Public Health

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I am a lecturer in the School of Public Health. I teach a post-graduate health promotion course, along with co-coordinating both the Honours program and the 3rd year Research Placement course in the School of Public Health. I am currently co-supervising one PhD student.

In relation to research, I am interested in social and environmental influences on children’s health behaviours. How these behaviours, and the influences on these behaviours change over time, is of particular interest. Additionally, I am interested in the development of unique intervention strategies to promote physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviours among children in both the family and school settings.
