Dr Amelia Smit (PhD, MPH, BA[HonsI]) is an early career researcher with expertise in epidemiological and qualitative research methods. Her PhD generated evidence to guide the translation of genomics into improved melanoma prevention and early detection in the population. She was the Project Manager for the Melanoma Genomics Managing Your Risk Study, a NHMRC-funded national randomised controlled trial, which underpinned her PhD research. Using mixed-methods (qualitative and quantitative) approaches, Amelia examined a range of factors important for effective research translation from individual behavioural, social and psychological outcomes to ethical and implementation considerations and expectations of health professionals. Amelia has also been a Lecturer in Cancer Control and Public Health in the University of Sydney School of Public Health.
