Tuesday, 01 September 2020


ECU Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Caroline Finch AO, has been featured in a recent publication highlighting past students from the all-female Melbourne Catholic College, Star of the Sea, where she is an alumna. Professor Finch was acknowledged for her achievements including her research into sports injury epidemiology and sports injury prevention, for leading the Australian Centre for Research into Injury in Sport and its Prevention, and for her contribution to many editorial boards of Sports Medicine, Science, and Injury Epidemiology Journals.

Professor Finch, herself a STEM researcher, is known globally for her injury prevention, injury surveillance and sports medicine research. She has previously been ranked as one of the 10 most highly published injury researchers of all time and is recognised as one of the most influential sports medicine researchers internationally. In 2018, Professor Finch was appointed as an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for her distinguished service to sports medicine, particularly in the area of injury prevention as an educator, researcher and author, and to the promotion of improved health in athletes and those who exercise.

In this special ‘Top 20’ publication, Professor Finch is featured alongside other standout graduates such as Germaine Greer, feminist, academic and writer; Rachel Griffiths AM, actor, director and social justice advocate; and Ellia Green OAM, Olympic gold-medal winner and professional rugby union player.
