Tania joined Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), an international not-for-profit, research and development centre within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia (SA) in September 2018. Her focus is on building the healthcare evidence base to provide clinicians with current best practice for clinical decision-making at point of care. As a Research Fellow and Academic Lead for JBI's Aged Care node, Tania works closely with an expert reference group (the Aged Care ERG) to support evidence based healthcare in aged care related environments.

Before coming to JBI, Tania worked as a Senior Researcher in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Flinders University, focusing on aged care, acute cardiac care, and cardiotoxicity research; at the Wellbeing and Resilience Centre, SA Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) as a senior researcher managing and analysing large data collections; and at the Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit, SAHMRI, as an Research Associate.

For over 10 years, Tania was employed as an epidemiologist in the area of surveillance of chronic disease and associated risk factors, survey methodology and population health data in the Discipline of Medicine at The University of Adelaide as a Research Associate (2010-2013) and at SA Health (2006-2010). This work involved the planning and implementation of surveys, data management, advanced epidemiological analyses of the data, and preparation of reports and publications. Tania played an integral part in setting up of the first SA Aboriginal Health Survey (SAAHS) which provided important data for the Aboriginal communities in SA and led to her completing her Masters entitled "Exploring the associations between chronic conditions and health risk factor prevalence with the participation in custodial rights and Caring for Country activities on South Australian traditional lands".

Tania continues to work in cardiotoxicity research from a patient-centred perspective of care, Aboriginal health, the social determinants of health, the challenges we face with the evolution of big data, and the inequities that exist within, and between, populations.
