PhD, MPH, BAppSc(Hons).
I am a Senior Lecturer at UNSW's School of Population Health, where I teach epidemiological research methods in two postgraduate courses: (1) Foundations of Epidemiology (PHCM9794), and (2) Causal Inference in Public Health (formerly Advanced Epidemiology) (PHCM9518). I have >15 years’ experience working in epidemiological research in Australia and Norway, including a PhD (awarded in 2010) and an NHMRC Early Career Fellowship with the Australian National University. I have extensive experience managing the design and implementation of multi-jurisdictional and multi-centre data linkage and cohort studies, including coordination of academics, clinicians, policy makers, and community organisations. I also have expertise in the management and analysis of large and complex administrative and cohort study datasets. Together with my collaborators, my goal is to generate evidence to inform policy and service delivery initiatives that will improve child population health, with a focus on disadvantaged children and families and reducing inequities. I work closely with policy makers in health, child protection, education and social policy to translate complex research findings into policy and practice.
