Returning from leave to begin a new fellowship!

This week I have returned to work from maternity leave to start a new job at the University of NSW, specifically within the Drug Policy Modelling Program at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre. I am starting my 4-year National Health and Medical Research Council Early Career Fellowship. My topic of research continues my interests ‘Drugs, Internet, Society’ but with a specific focus on new/novel/emerging drugs, as these pose unique policy challenges both here and globally.

I’ll be part-time to begin with and I have a number of ongoing projects to complete as well, but I do hope to become more active again with my blogging and other social media outlets. I really value the interactivity and public conversations that these media allow. So, expect some more discussions over the coming months. 🙂

  1. Congratulations on the fellowship, Monica! Best of luck in this new position and I look forward to more of your posts!

    P.S. You don’t really know me (hence why I didn’t say ‘hi’) but I saw you on Smith Street a couple of weeks ago. Just felt like mentioning it! Hope your baby is happy and healthy. See ya ’round.
