Dr Briony Hill is a Research Fellow in the Health and Social Care Unit, School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University. She completed her PhD in Health Psychology in 2015 at Deakin University, exploring a psychosocial and behaviour change approach to preventing excessive gestational weight gain. For her thesis, she was awarded an Alfred Deakin Medal for Doctoral Thesis and an Australian Psychological Society (APS) Health College Award for Excellent Higher Degree Thesis in Health Psychology. Briony has received competitive fellowship funding since completing her PhD, including an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and an NHMRC Early Career Fellowship in the area of preconception wellbeing. In 2023 Briony will commence an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA).

Briony's research interests include maternal wellbeing - in particular, encouraging healthy weight, obesity prevention, and healthy lifestyle behaviours before, during and after pregnancy. She also applies an Ecological Systems Theory lens to her research to recognise the broader impacts on weight management and lifestyle health that extend through the community, society and government.

The Judith Lumley Centre lunchtime seminars are free and open to all.  Held on the first Wednesday of every month from February to December. These seminars showcase the work of national and international academics/researchers.
