Daniel has worked for ten years in blood-borne virus (BBV) prevention, sexual health promotion and cancer screening recruitment with diverse communities including gay men, migrants and refugees, and Aboriginal Australians.
In 2012 he wrote Victoria’s first Underscreened Recruitment Strategy for the Cancer Council of Victoria. Most recently he has worked with Dr Graham Brown at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society using complex systems theory and systems thinking methods to articulate program theories for peer-based strategies for BBV prevention.
At RegNet, Daniel will undertake an ethnographic study of the ways in which practitioners in social marketing and strategic communications manage the potential for their work to strengthen inequitable social structures, under the supervision of Kate Henne, Gemma Carey and Helen Keane.
Daniel holds qualifications in law, cultural studies and public health. He writes a blog - Bad Blood - about stigma and public health.
