Biography

Dr Corr is a Senior Research Fellow and NHMRC Early Career Fellow with a Masters of Public Health and PhD from the University of Melbourne. Lara is a public health sociologist and epidemiologist researching how work impacts on the wellbeing of workers. Prior to moving to Swinburne, she carried out a post-doc at the Australian National University examining how working time patterns affect health behaviours.

Dr Corr’s NHMRC Fellowship uses both big data sets and in-depth interviews to examine how to protect the mental health of workers and children in child care settings to support a sustainable and high quality workforce with optimal child outcomes.

In 2016 Dr Corr won the ‘Wellbeing at Work Young Investigator Award’ for research and presentations on “Constructing work-sensitive healthy lifestyles: trade-offs and displacements”.  As well has her main Fellowship project, Lara is also investigating how businesses successfully implement working conditions that promote employee wellbeing.
