I am an early career researcher, initially training in medical science and completing my PhD in epidemiology from the University of Sydney in 2018. I have policy and research experience in a range of public health areas including chronic disease primary and secondary prevention, vaccine preventable diseases, injury epidemiology and cancer. I am currently a Research Fellow leading the development and implementation of the Pathways Ovarian Program of research at Cancer Council NSW. This Program of research aims to provide health outcome and cost-effectiveness evidence for research, policy and healthcare interventions for women with and at risk of ovarian cancer.

I also have a strong interest in capacity building for higher degree students, early career researchers and career transitions, and am passionate about the promotion of women in STEMM. I am a founding and active member of the Peer Advisory Committee for Franklin Women, a social enterprise for women in health and medical research, curate their monthly e-newsletter and lead Franklin Women’s research and evaluation activities.
