Biography

Dr Charrlotte Seib is an early career academic who has made significant contributions to knowledge surrounding women’s health and human sexuality specifically in relation to commercial sex. Currently she is employed has a research fellow on the Women’s Wellness after Cancer Program, a national multisite randomised controlled trial designed to test of an e-health enabled lifestyle modification intervention to improve the health and wellness of women after cancer.  Charrlotte is interested in the impact of previous life stressors on health and quality of life in women after cancer and in determining whether participation in a lifestyle intervention can mitigate the potentially deleterious impact of chronic stress. Her fellowship program builds on past ECR work which examined the impact of chronic life stress on health-related quality of life in women by exploring whether prolonged exposure to stress might pose a heightened risk to long term health.  Charrlotte is also interested in determining whether exposure to stress across the life course is associated with distinct health trajectories and whether it can provide insight into the potential pathways for disease aetiology. Her strength areas are:

  • quantitative research approaches
  • statistical modelling
  • publishing in the area of women’s health, and
  • an ability to undertake sensitive research.

Her research interests include:       

  •  women’s health       
  • health and lifestyle behaviours       
  •  impact of exposure to stress       
  • violence prevention       
  • sexual and reproductive health       
  • quality of life.
