I am an epidemiologist in the BetterStart Child Health and Development Research Group within the School of Public Health. I returned to the University of Adelaide in 2011 following a decade with SA Health and a two-year postdoctoral position at the University of Bristol.
My research focuses on how we can reduce inequalities in, and improve overall population levels of, child health and development, and also whether we can identify children who are likely to have poor development, for better targeting of family support programs. I have an interest in applying causal epidemiological techniques to these questions and making use of population data from longitudinal cohorts and data linkage studies. I also teach undergraduate public health and epidemiology.
