Dr Amanda Wheeler is a Senior Research Fellow in the Behaviour, Environment and Cognition Research program based at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research, Australian Catholic University. She is part of the team investigating the effects of the built environment, air pollution and noise on the cognitive health of older adults. Her other research interests include evaluating interventions to improve indoor air quality that is impacted by biomass smoke. Her published research interests include personal exposures to air pollution from residential and ambient sources, tracking activity patterns, and understanding the intra-urban variability of air pollutants using GIS tools and developing Land Use Regression (LUR) models. She has experience with a range of environmental pollutants including particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, phthalates and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. She is also an Honorary Fellow at the University of Tasmania and The University of Melbourne.
