Dr Huyen Do is a postdoctoral research fellow and social epidemiologist at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). She has a substantial career in public health teaching and social epidemiology research since 2006. Dr Huyen earned her Master’s degree and PhD in Public Health from QUT in 2013 and 2022, respectively. Her PhD research was pivotal in a multinational study on violence against pregnant women across eight middle-income countries, led by the Violence Research Centre at the University of Cambridge, QUT, and other esteemed partners as part of the Evidence for Better Lives Study (EBLS).
Dr Huyen’s primary research focus revolves around developing epidemiological studies and technical tools to investigate violence against children and women. She has collaborated with colleagues at leading universities and institutions including international collaboration and public health consulting work with several roles with community groups in Vietnam, particularly with international non-governmental organizations (iNGOs) dedicated to women’s and children’s health and well-being. Her extensive experience and expertise encompass studies on violence against women and children and maternal mental health, nurtured through academic partnerships in East Asia, Australia and globally.
Recognizing her valuable contributions and research skills, Dr Huyen was invited to participate as an expert contributor in a groundbreaking project managed by the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI), the world’s largest research network focused on violence against women and children. This initiative aims to create an online course tailored to researchers in low- and middle-income countries, to enhance the quality of tools available for future research on violence against women and children, empowering anti-violence advocates worldwide.
Additionally, Dr Huyen is engaged with the Global Burden of Disease network and has 34 scientific publications. Her extensive experiences have provided invaluable insights into the collection, analysis, interpretation, and application of crucial health information for the management of global and local health systems, as well as the prevention of child maltreatment.
