Biographical details

I am an epidemiologist and biostatistician working in Environmental and Planetary Health at the School of Public Health. In 2018, I completed the NSW Health Biostatistics Training Program and Master of Biostatistics. This involved work in environmental health, road safety and perinatal health. In 2013, I completed my Master of International Public Health at the University of Sydney. Prior to that, I spent over a year in Timor-Leste working with the Dili, City of Peace campaign. I am currently completing my PhD which investigates environmental exposures, air pollution and temperature, and their health effects on vulnerable people in NSW.
