Dr Rowan Ogeil


Research Fellow, Eastern Health Clinical School, Monash University, and Turning Point, Eastern Health.

Rowan’s research has centred on understanding the impact that behaviours, particularly shift work and drug use, have on psychological outcomes, chiefly health and sleep states. Rowan’s research has employed translational methods across genetic, behavioural, and population levels to deliver significant impacts.

To date he has published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, many in leading journals. Rowan’s work is highly regarded both in Australia and internationally, and he has previously held an NHMRC Peter Doherty Fellowship, and an Australia-Harvard fellowship. 

Rowan coordinates a unit in the Monash University Masters of Addictive Behaviours, and contributes to other undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

He represents the Eastern Health Clinical School on Monash University’s Diversity and Social Inclusion committee, and the faculty’s ECR steering committee. Rowan also serves as the Turning Point representative on the Alcohol Policy Coalition, a group that develops and promotes evidence-based policy responses that are known to be effective in preventing and reducing alcohol related problems.

Rowan has a keen interest in promoting science to the broader community. He runs workshops for clinicians in the alcohol and other drug sector on the impacts of drugs and sleep, and has been part of CSIRO’s Scientist in Schools Program and the CityCite program.
