Career Summary

Biography

Xuan Luu is a teaching-focused Lecturer in the School of Medicine and Public Health. He holds an undergraduate degree in psychology, a postgraduate degree in higher education studies, and a Master of Public Health. He has strong interests in areas that include: the public health approach to violence prevention; social epidemiology and violence; community-engaged mental health promotion; and the scholarship of public health learning and teaching in higher education.

Xuan commenced his university teaching career as a Teaching Fellow in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Sydney (2012-2015). He taught across the undergraduate health sciences curriculum, collaborated with academic and professional colleagues to lead and embed a large-scale peer mentoring programme for allied health students, and received Faculty-level (2013) and University-level (2014) awards for his successes in supporting the student experience. After several years spent in full-time positions dedicated to health and wellbeing promotion with university student populations, Xuan returned to teaching in mid-2018 with the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University, where he co-developed curriculum and taught pre-medical students in the areas of medical ethics and health professional practice.

At present, Xuan holds course coordination and teaching responsibilities across several postgraduate courses in the Master of Public Health degree, and operationalises a broadening programme of research that focuses on the scholarship of public health learning and teaching.
