Research Officer, RMIT University, Australia



Amanda Alderton is a Research Officer at RMIT University whose research focuses on the role of geographic environments in shaping the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. Her work seeks to understand how features of the residential environments - including housing, social infrastructure, and green space - where children are raised may contribute to, or redress, disparities in child mental health (inequities).
