Dr. Russ Fox is a Lecturer in applied behaviour analysis at Monash University. He is a trained primary school teacher with experience teaching and working in mainstream primary schools.

His research interests include school-wide positive behaviour supports, multi-tiered systems of support, responsive teacher training, and the sustainability of implementation of evidence-based practices in education.
