Dr Yelland is an NHMRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Healthy Mothers, Babies and Children Theme at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute and in the School of Population Health at The University of Adelaide. As a biostatistician specializing in maternal and infant health, her research broadly aims to improve the statistical quality of perinatal trials. She is currently investigating methods for designing and analysing such trials when clustering is present due to the inclusion of multiple births.
Dr Zonghan Xie grew up in eastern China in a small town named Huaibei, Anhui Province. He studied Materials Science and Engineering at Northeastern University (东北大学) and Southeast University (东南大学), both in China. In 2004 Dr Xie received his PhD (Materials Engineering) from the University of NSW (UNSW), supported by the IPRS scholarship program of the Australian Government. After that, he was awarded an Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Australian Research Council.
My research interests mainly include environmental epidemiology (climate change, workplace heat exposure, and infectious diseases) and the relevant statistical methods required for it, such as time-series analysis, logistic regression analysis and qualitative research skills.
Currently, I am doing an AusAid project with aims to investigate the public health impact of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases due to climate change.
I am currently working as a postdoc researcher at Australian Centre for Visual Technologies in the University of Adelaide.
Before that, I got my PhD degree in Media Technology Research Centre of Department of Computer Science, University of Bath, supervised by Dr. Peter Hall and Dr. Matthew Brown. My educational background is primarily in computer science and mathematics. I am holding MSc degree in Global Computing & Media Technology from University of Bath and BEng degree in Information and Computing Science from China Jiliang University, China.
