Researcher biography

Dr Aimee Brownbill is an ARC Early Career Industry Fellow with the Centre for Digital Cultures and Societies and the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education.

Aimee has a PhD in Medicine (Public Health) and has contributed to collaborative applied research informing public health policy for several years. A key focus of her work to-date has been on the commercial determinants of health, particularly the influence of marketing practices on health and wellbeing.

Aimee is currently leading a program of work on digital marketing by harmful industries such as alcohol, gambling and highly processed unhealthy foods, exploring potential avenues for regulation in this space. She has been awarded an ARC Early Career Industry Fellowship to further explore this topic. The project will offer researchers, civil society and government with new methods to examine and monitor digital marketing practices and inform the development of consumer protection measures in the digital era.
