Biography

Dr Tessa Keegel is a NHMRC post-doctoral research fellow located at the Monash Centre for Occupational and Environmental Health, Monash University and the McCaughey Centre, the University of Melbourne. She has qualifications in epidemiology and biostastics, as well as cultural theory. Most of her experience has been gained in universities or public health organisations. Tessa's research interests are in the field of work and health. She is particularly interested in the ways an individual's health and well-being are contextualised within workplaces, with respect to occupational exposures and disease. Tessa has a special interest in the ways that policy and legislation affect these interactions. Tessa has completed research evaluating policy interventions for the control of occupational disease, specifically the use of Material Safety Data Sheets as a means of hazard communication and exposure control. She has conducted extensive research on the psychosocial work environment and other hazardous occupational exposures including those leading to occupational contact dermatitis. Her previous roles have included Epidemiology Research Fellow at Melbourne's Skin and Cancer Foundation, where she has since been appointed an Honorary Research Fellow. Tessa has a total of nineteen peer-reviewed journal articles as well as several non-peer-reviewed publications
