Lisa came to us from The George Institute for Global Health where she completed her doctoral project, an ARC Linkage funded study on the crash risk of commercial vehicle drivers related to medical conditions, in particular obstructive sleep apnoea, as well as issues such as remuneration and scheduling. Prior to moving to Sydney, Lisa worked as Research Coordinator for the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in the Emergency Department research group and before this at the Monash University Accident Research Centre on a variety of real world crash investigation projects while completing her Masters in Public Health. Her interest in injury prevention and health care outcomes research originally germinated from a clinical career as a Critical Care nurse; spent predominantly in the trauma services at The Alfred hospital, Melbourne, as well as several countries overseas, with some work additionally in developing countries.
