Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I am currently an Adjunct Lecturer at UOA with full time academic appointment at Flinders University.
Prior to joining Flinders, I worked with the BetterStart Child Health and Development Research Group as a postdoctoral researcher, where I am working on a project examining evidence-based practices and programs aimed at improving outcomes for children and families. I have undergraduate training in Neuroscience and Physiology, followed by a PhD in Paediatrics comparing the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit outcomes of very preterm babies in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. I achieved a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Epidemiology in 2020. Previously, I worked as a Project Coordinator for the big data project SAFER Hospitals (Safety, Effectiveness of Care and Resource Use among Australian Hospitals).

I have a wide range of public health experience gained in the University of Adelaide, University of New South Wales, University of Wollongong, and University of Toronto.
