I am a communicable diseases epidemiologist. I have postgraduate qualifications in public health and applied epidemiology. My particular interests lie in outbreak investigation and the epidemiology of Campylobacter and Salmonella infections. In 2014, I commenced a PhD at the Australian National University's Research School of Population Health after being awarded a National Health and Medical Research Council postgraduate scholarship. This work will focus on the clinical burden of Campylobacter infection in Australia.
