Ilona McNeill splits her time between working as a Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne and as a Lecturer at ACAP; she is a behavioural scientist with a key interest in finding effective strategies to increase the performance of risk mitigating behaviours. Her current work focuses on the development of a digital platform that improves people’s ability to self-manage their health and wellbeing. She also has a strong interest in quantitative research methods and analysis, including measurement development and validation and multi-level modelling. Before joining the NHMRC CRE, Ilona led a BNHCRC funded project at The University of Melbourne that focused on increasing the performance of risk reducing preparatory behaviours by residents living in bushfire and flood prone areas. She has collaborated broadly with Australian colleagues, American colleagues, as well as European colleagues based in the Netherlands and the UK.
