Biographical details

Nicola has been involved in the quantitative analysis of data in biological and medical fields since the start of her research career. Her PhD in quantitative genetics on inbreeding and inbreeding depression in Holstein Friesians involved the analysis of administrative data records from over 2 million dairy cattle in Australia dating back to the 1960s. She has interest in the stochastic simulation of data which she had done to predict inbreeding and other genetic effects on sheep populations from the implementation of the National Scrapie Program while undertaking her post-doctoral work in Scottish Agricultural College, Edinburgh, UK.

From 2008 to 2012, Dr Man has taught and tutored biostatistics to Masters in Public Health students as well as carrying out HIV social and behavioural research at the University of New South Wales. She was involved in a prevalence study on parents with intellectual disability and their families in Australia using large-scale population surveys and linked administrative data when she joined the Faculty of Health Sciences in the University of Sydney. She is currently working as a research fellow with the Sydney Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Statistics.

Research interests

Statistics particularly in the analysis of large-scale data.

Mathematical modelling to assess population-level outcomes of large-scale interventions, policies or programs.

General interest in the use of quantitative techniques to answer questions of interest in fields including public health, health and social sciences and genetics.
