As an early career health economist, I commenced work with the Health Economics and Social Policy Group in December 2010. My early research with the group focused on the health benefits of dairy consumption and contributed towards completion of a Master of Health Economics and Policy (University of Adelaide).
I am now undertaking doctoral studies with research focusing upon improving our understanding of the health, social and economic consequences of child maltreatment.
- Having spent time working in health technology assessment (HTA) I have developed a keen and critical eye for epidemiology. There is nobody in the health sector that would not benefit from an improved understanding of epidemiological principles and research methodology.
- With training in clinical medicine, I have a special interest in furthering the understanding of health economics in clinical students and health professionals alike. It is imperative that people at the frontline of the health sector understand the problems faced by policy-makers in order for the system to operate efficiently and effectively, and of course the converse is just as true.
