Personal profile


A highly experienced applied biostatistician who is currently the Head of the Division of Population Studies at the University of Western Australia. With over 20-years statistical experience, I have acquired extensive knowledge and expertise in clinical trials, epidemiological studies, intervention studies, surveys, longitudinal studies and studies involving linked data. I am currently principal supervisor for 3 PhD students and co-supervisor for 8 students, with several recent completions. I am currently the Chair of the Research Committee and a Board Member of the Busselton Population Medical Research Institute, and sit on the representative council as an Australasian representative for the International Biometrics Society. I was previously employed in the role of the Director of the University of Western Australia’s Centre for Applied Statistics (2009-2016), where I developed associations with researchers and business clients and built and mentored a strong team of biostatisticians.
