Biography

Ingrid is a cardiovascular epidemiologist and biostatistician with a background in laboratory-based medical research. She is currently a Research Fellow within the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Research Centre. 

Ingrid's is committed to conducting codesigned research that improves the heart health of First Nations people. Her PhD (submitted February 2024) was based on acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD), which are preventable diseases caused by Strep A bacterial infections. ARF and RHD are capable of causing serious heart damage and premature death, even in young people. In Australia, ARF/RHD are experienced most frequently by First Nations and migrant people. Ingrid's PhD used linked data to investigate short, medium and long-term health outcomes for young people after their ARF and/or RHD diagnosis, within the context of disease Control Program activities. Her PhD also measured hospitalisation patterns and costs of treating ARF and RHD in Australia.  

Ingrid is currently investigating the impact of pregnancy on heart health outcomes for women with RHD. She is also working in a team that is investigating the use of primary health care data for the passive surveillance of diseases caused by Strep A (in partnership with Telethon Kid's Institute).
