Ellie is an early-career chronic disease epidemiologist with experience in analysis of large-scale national and international epidemiological and administrative datasets. Her main research interests are in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and absolute cardiovascular disease risk screening. Following the award of her PhD in epidemiology and population health from the ANU in 2015, she undertook a two-year postdoctoral research position with the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge, where her research focused on modelling of absolute cardiovascular disease risk. She is currently a Research Fellow at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health at the ANU, and continues to collaborate with researchers from the University of Cambridge and University College London on using UK electronic primary care patient records for CVD absolute risk assessment.
