Mallory is a PhD candidate and Research Associate with the Kirby's Biosecurity Program, led by Prof Raina MacIntyre. She is the epidemiologist for the Shiba Inu OSINT Initiative, which aims to make to make EPIWATCH accessible to low- and middle-income countries. EPIWATCH is an open-source intelligence tool that works by scanning millions of items of publicly available online data, such as social media and news reports, for early signals of epidemics.

Her PhD, entitled "Barriers and enablers of vaccination - informing whole of life vaccination policy" is focused on gaining a deeper understanding of vaccine hesitancy and assessing current vaccine policies in Australia. In addition, she is currently managing the data collection for a randomised trial of mask use in control of respiratory outcomes during bushfire season, as well as a data linkage project to estimate the effectiveness of influenza vaccines in preventing cardiovascular hospitalisations. 

Prior to joining the Biosecurity Program, she managed a cluster-randomized controlled trial of the effect of low-cost water quality test kits on household water quality in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. She received her BSc in biology from the College of William and Mary and MSPH from Johns Hopkins University.
