My driving objective is to transform population scale epidemiological data into health intelligence, translating evidence based findings to improve practice, policy in healthcare and drive better health outcomes across populations. I am a highly experienced epidemiologist, health services researcher and critical care RN, with significant experience coordinating large research programs involving national industry and government stake-holders. I am proficient in the analysis and interpretation of population scale health data-sets, specialist in injury causation analysis. I have advised industry and government bodies (including Standards Australia, Federal government, board governed statutory bodies and Treasury) and the judicial system regarding injury risk and prevention.
