Natalie Jovanovski

 

Dr Natalie Jovanovski is an award-winning author and health sociologist, whose research focus is on identifying and critiquing the gendered (e.g., structural and institutional) factors that affect women’s relationships with food and their bodies. Natalie’s research has focused specifically on how cultural messages about food are marketed to women, and the way that these messages normalise disordered and restrictive eating behaviours.

Dr Jovanovski has published her research in various Q1 journals, such as Critical Public Health and Violence Against Women. Her research has also been discussed both in Australia and internationally; featuring in gender and policy blogs such as The Power to Persuade, as well as mainstream media outlets, such as SBS News, Medium, and news.com.au.
