Dr Tegan Grace
PhD, BSc (Hons)
After completing her BSc at Edith Cowan University in 2006, Tegan worked as a research assistant at the Telethon Kids Institute, using the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study for four years before commencing doctoral studies at Notre Dame in 2010.
With the support of an APA scholarship and using longitudinal data from the Raine Study, Tegan investigated the effect of perinatal and antenatal events on motor development. She has published several papers focusing on the events surrounding pregnancy and birth and the impact on motor development in childhood and adolescence.
Tegan has taught undergraduate students in units for academic writing and research, physical activity and health, sociology and psychology of sport, and health issues and preventative approaches. She remains passionate about research and is seeking opportunities to extend her experiences and knowledge into studies working with Aboriginal communities.
