NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow

Background

Danielle Horyniak is an epidemiologist whose research aims to inform the prevention and reduction of harms associated with alcohol and illicit drug use. With a particular focus on migrant and refugee-background populations, Danielle uses a mix of quantitative and qualitative approaches to examine the social and structural factors shaping health and inform evidence-based responses to mitigate health and social inequities. Danielle recently returned to Burnet Institute after spending two years working with the Division of Global Public Health, University of California San Diego, where she conducted research to improve the health of deported migrants on the US-Mexico border. Danielle holds a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Hons) and a PhD in Epidemiology, both from Monash University.
