Dr Stacey Hokke Research Officer, Judith Lumley Centre

Stacey is a Research Officer in the Transition to Contemporary Parenthood Program at the Judith Lumley Centre. Stacey joined the program in 2016. Stacey is a co-investigator on the Families at Work project, which aims to identify the support needs of employed Australian parents to reduce work-family conflict and improve the health and wellbeing of working mothers and fathers. She is also a co-investigator on the Parent Engagement Project, which explores the feasibility and ethics of using the internet and social media to recruit, retain and trace participants in research, including families and children.

Stacey also assists the EHLS at School study by performing in-home child assessments of social and emotional development and academic functioning.

Stacey's research interests include the use of social media to engage participants in research, online research ethics, work-family conflict and the role of organisational supports and family-friendly policies, parent mental health and wellbeing, and the role of maternal health in fetal and child development.

Stacey has a background in maternal health and developmental biology. She completed her PhD in 2015 at Monash University, which investigated the effects of diabetes in pregnancy on fetal kidney development in women and in animal models.
