I have been a project statistician and coordinator for the TREAT Asia studies since 2009, primarily working on the HIV observational database (TAHOD, TAHOD-LITE, TAHOD CC) and resistance studies (TASER-M, TASER-S, and TASER-2). I have worked in the clinical trial sector within the pharmaceutical and CRO organisations, and is currently a Research Fellow at the Kirby Institute's Biostatistics and Databases Program. I have extensive experience in analysing different types of medical and epidemiological data (matched case-control, cross-sectional, longitudinal), including multi-regional large datasets. I am a supervisor for several PhD candidates across different research disciplines. My other interests and experience include research in haematological malignancies and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.
I am part of the International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) grant U01AI069907.
I am the Biostatistician for The TREAT Asia HIV Observational Database (TAHOD, TAHOD-LITE, TAHOD-CC). I have been involved in numerous publications over the years focusing on risk factors, adherence and genotyping in people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Asia. More recently, I have been involved in the development and analysis of TAHOD sub-studies including pregnancies among women living with HIV, mental health-related issues, linkage of loss to follow-up patients, and COVID-19 incidence and outcomes among PLHIV. I am also involved in a multi-regional study assessing risk factors for treatment and survival outcomes in patients (HIV positive and negative) diagnosed with a malignant lymphoma.
My Research Supervision

My teaching includes database management and statistical analyses of epidemiological databases. I have also conducted concept sheet and manuscript writing workshop at international conferences.
