I am an epidemiologist whose strength is my breadth of experience. I have worked in a number of areas, including infectious diseases, foodborne disease, nutrition, child health, asthma and Indigenous Health.
One of my specialist areas is applied epidemiology, with a focus on the investigation and response to outbreaks and epidemics of disease.
In addition to my work in Australia, I have extensive experience working in the Asia Pacific region, having worked in Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Cambodia in capacity building and responding to health emergencies.
I also have considerable expertise in science and health communication, with a particular interest in risk communication.
