Erica Kneipp

Head of Research Strategy
College Executive
ANU College of Health & Medicine
Types of mentoring: 
Non-academic

I believe mentoring is important because the future rests with the talent of tomorrow and I want to make sure early-career academics are set up for success and have eyes wide open to the opportunities ahead.

My experience spans all levels of government, private and not-for-profit health sectors in Australia. I have a particular passion for evidence-based policy and research praxis. I joined ANU after a decade in Commonwealth Health supporting a number of national portfolios and Ministers. I was instrumental in establishing the Medical Research Future Fund and driving other significant policy agendas. I have stories of survival in hierarchies, and lessons from being persistent, determined and influential. I am a science junkie, although untrained, and consider myself a research enabler. My strengths are people development, entrepreneurialism, strategic policy and getting stuff done.
