Dr Jessica Stanhope is an epidemiologist and registered physiotherapist (APA Research Physiotherapist), with a broad research background in environmental and occupational health. She has qualifications in physiotherapy (BPhysio(Hons), MACP), public health/ epidemiology (GCertClinEpid, PhD, FRSPH), and music (AMusA, BMus). Jess has 19 years teaching experience (10 in universities), 11 years research experience and 9 years as a registered physiotherapist. Jess has >115 research outputs, including >35 first author, peer reviewed papers. She has been invited to present her work internationally, and her work has attracted media attention. Jess is an active reviewer for several journals, and has reviewed grant applications for the ​Swiss National Science Foundation. She is recognised as a leader in musicians' health and environmental physiotherapy research, and has recently been invited to develop courses for the Environmental Physiotherapy Association.

Jess leads the Environmental Allied Health Group at The University of Adelaide. The health of the natural environment can impact many aspects of human health, including mental health, pain, respiratory health, and birth outcomes. We draw upon multidisciplinary expertise to broadly investigate 1. how ecosystem health impacts human health, 2. how people utilise greenspaces, 3. health professional perceptions of ecohealth, and 4. how allied health professionals can utilise greenspace to improve human health outcomes. Ultimately, we aim to improve human health through clinical and public health recommendations for the optimisation and utilisation of greenspaces, and the restoration and conservation of the natural environment.

Student projects are available for 2022 for Honours through to PhD level. A diverse range of projects are available and can be tailored to the students interests and learning goals. Projects may include laboratory and field work, intervention studies, and epidemiological studies. 

In addition to the work within the Environmental Allied Health group, I have broad research interests in occupational and environmental health, the health workforce, and ecology.

Research topics

I am particularly interested in cross-disciplinary research. My primary research interest is in exploring the relationship between greenspace exposure and human health outcomes. Other research I am involved in includes investigating the relationship between maternal exposure to trihalomethanes in water supplies  and birth outcomes; proposing strategies that model the environmental and human health outcomes driven by environmental changes; investigating the application of genomics to restoration and conservation ecology;  investigating vegetation changes over time at Witchelina Nature Reserve; proposing minimum dataset requirements for future studies. 

I am collaborating broadly with researchers from The University of Adelaide, Flinders University, University of South Australia, University of Western Australia, Griffith University, University of Queensland, Australian National University, Victoria University, University of Tasmania, University of Montana, the SP Jain School of Global Management, Nature Foundation of South Australia, Metro Pain Group, Mansfield Medical Centre, Department of Environment and Water (South Australia), across a wide range of disciplines.
