Michelle Jongenelis

 

Dr Michelle Jongenelis has expertise in health promotion, intervention development and evaluation, behavioural psychology, and clinical psychology. She works across multiple and diverse health-related behaviours including alcohol and tobacco control (including use of e-cigarettes), nutrition, physical activity, and sun protection.

She also has an interest in body image disturbances, eating disorders, and healthy ageing. Michelle works as a researcher and consultant for a broad range of organisations covering the not-for-profit and government sectors. She sits on the Australian Council of Smoking and Health and is a member of the Alcohol Advertising Review Board. She is an accredited Clinical Psychologist and has been a committee member of the Australian Association for Cognitive and Behaviour Therapy since 2008.

In 2020, Dr Jongenelis was awarded an NHMRC Investigator Grant for her project, Minimising uptake of e-cigarettes and encouraging cessation among Australian adolescents and adults. This project aims to (i) develop and test a model examining predictors of e-cigarette use and susceptibility to use among adolescents and adults; (ii) develop, implement, and evaluate messages that effectively minimise uptake and encourage cessation of e-cigarette use; and (iii) develop resources for stakeholders that provide guidance on managing use. Results have the potential to inform efforts addressing the growing use of e-cigarettes among Australians and may thus assist in preventing potential increases in smoking prevalence rates and minimise the harms associated with use.
