In 2007, Dr Seib was awarded a PhD, having examined the health and safety of female sex workers from Queensland, Australia. Women working in the sex industry are potentially at risk of violence from commercial clients and may also be more likely to report poor health outcomes which are correlated with exposure to violence and current industry sector.

Dr Seib continues to consult with agencies on policy development and clinical services for sex workers, and was recently asked to speak at a United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Symposium on service delivery and referral models from women trafficked in Southeast Asia, Australasia and the Pacific.

Her research interests include

  • women’s health
  • violence prevention
  • sexual and reproductive health
  • quality of life
  • infectious diseases
  • the sex industry.

Dr Seib’s current work explores the relationship between violence and health outcomes among ‘at-risk’ families.
