Mrs Emma Muhlack

Associate Lecturer

School of Public Health

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am an Associate Lecturer in the School of Public Health, with research interests in:
- the sociology of recreational drug and alcohol use
- public health ethics & medical bioethics
- health communication

My primary teaching areas are in health communication, academic literacy, and health ethics.

I am interested in drug and alcohol studies, and in particular the sociology of "low risk" consumption and how this informs the ethics of intervention.

My PhD project examined low-risk drinkers and whether it’s ethically justifiable to intervene in their alcohol consumption in connection with the ARC Linkage Project "Public and ethical responses to mandated alcohol warning labels about increased long-term risk of cancer" (LP120200175). My supervisors were Associate Professor Jaklin Eliott, Dr Drew Carter, and Professor Annette Braunack-Mayer.
