Sue has 135 peer-reviewed papers and has successfully translated her work into practice and policy. She also provides peer reviews for 10 paediatric and public health journals. Sue is an investigator on 37 grants with >$13 M funding over the last 5 years. She holds a NHMRC Career Development Fellowship to address health inequities in children at risk of or with neurodevelopmental disorders. She has a strong interest in developing and testing models of care that reach marginalised  populations. Key areas of work are:


First 2000 Days Care Connect (FDCC)
Sue is CIA on FDCC, which is a holistic, first 2000 days model of care for migrant and refugee populations. Her team has been successful in securing Translational Research Grant Scheme funding from NSW Health to evaluate the impact of an integrated Child and Family Health (CFH) hub on attendance at CFH services, completion of developmental checks, support for child growth and development, breastfeeding and maternal wellbeing, and meeting family psychosocial needs. This research is done in partnership with South East Sydney Local Health District, South West Sydney Local Health District and Northern Sydney Local Health District with embedded project officers in each Local Health District.

Equitable Pathways in Integrated Care in Cerebral Palsy (EPIC-CP)
Sue has received funding from the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Foundation and SCHN ($400,000) to develop a social care navigator pathway for disadvantaged children and young people with CP. She is working in close partnership with the Cerebral Palsy Alliance and the Rehabilitation Units in NSW to undertake this translational research. It is overseen by an advisory group of young people with CP and another advisory group of parents of children with CP.
