Associate Professor Alan Clough
Associate Professor Clough is principally recognised in Australia for his significant contribution to research and practice in the field of substance use problems in Indigenous communities. He brings to his work the unique perspective of having lived and worked in remote Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory's 'Top End' for almost 20 years. His research work is typically in communities where English is the second language. More recently, he has expanded his research to include studies of alcohol-related assault around licensed premises in inner-city areas. He is also supporting studies of HIV/AIDS in Papua New Guinea, research capacity building in the Solomon Islands and studies of containment strategies for H1N1 ('swine flu') in Indigenous communities.
