Bio

Dr Katrina Champion is an NHMRC Early Career Fellow at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre. She is currently spending two years at Northwestern University, Chicago where she is developing an online multiple health behaviour change intervention to reduce chronic disease risk among adolescents. Katrina's doctoral research involved the development and evaluation of the Climate Schools: Ecstasy & Emerging Drugs module, the first online school-based prevention program designed to prevent ecstasy and new psychoactive substances. In 2015-2017 Katrina led the development and launch of the Cracks in the Ice online toolkit, which aims to provide the Australian community with accurate, evidence-based information and support about crystal methamphetamine (ice). Katrina's research interests include the development and evaluation of innovative resources to improve the health and wellbeing of young Australians, Internet-based interventions and school-based interventions.
