Dr Sinead Golley is a behavioural scientist who joined the CSIRO in May 2009.

Her current research topics include the understanding the drivers of food choice, in particular food avoidance, acceptance of novel technologies in relation to food, and also individual differences with relevance to health attitudes and their impact on (multiple) health behaviours.
