I am an early-career epidemiologist with over five years of research experience. I am based in the Medicines Intelligence (MedIntel) Research Program, School of Population Health, UNSW. My research focuses on using large administrative health datasets, such as dispensing claims, general practice data and survey data, to understand the real-world use, benefits and harms of medicines and vaccines and explore how national policies impact health outcomes. Ultimately, my research seeks to inform the development of evidence-based healthcare policies that promote optimal health outcomes for all.
In addition, I have conducted surveys investigating the epidemiology of multidrug-resistant bacteria colonisation among vulnerable populations (including children, pregnant women, people living with HIV, people with diabetes and drug users). I have also used molecular epidemiology to explore the association between multidrug-resistant bacteria colonisation in populations and the surrounding environment. My work aims to identify strategies to mitigate the spread of these dangerous pathogens and improve public health outcomes.
Previously, I worked as a public health officer where I gained experience in infectious disease surveillance, chronic disease management, child and women health management, and immunisation management.
