Biographical details

Dr Navneet Dhand aims to use epidemiological and statistical tools to improve public health and to solve intricate problems confronting animal industries.

Originally trained as a veterinarian in India, Dr Dhand became a member of the Epidemiology Chapter of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in 2007 and was awarded the inaugural Chris Baldock Prize for achieving the highest score in the membership examination. He completed his PhD in Veterinary Science from the University of Sydney in 2008 that contributed significantly to our understanding of risk factors for ovine Johne’s disease in Australia.

Dr Dhand joined as a Lecturer in Veterinary Biostatistics and Epidemiology at The University of Sydney in 2007 and was later promoted to a Senior Lecturer in January 2012. He also currently provides leadership as the Academic Supervisor of the Veterinary Public Health postgraduate program and as the Sub Dean Research Development in the Faculty of Veterinary Science.

Research interests

Dr Dhand is a competent veterinary epidemiologist with expertise in designing and conducting epidemiological studies and surveys. He has a keen interest in social and behavioural epidemiology, particularly in the application of psychological theories of human behaviour in biosecurity research.

Since his appointment as Lecturer in 2007, Dr Dhand has successfully completed many research projects including investigation of the spread of equine influenza during the 2007 outbreak in Australia; zoonotic disease risk perceptions and infection control practices of veterinarians; and public and pig farmer perceptions of the 2009 pandemic influenza A/H1N1.

Dr Dhand also has interests in developing statistical tools. He has developed four SAS macros to facilitate statistical modelling (http://elearn.vetsci.usyd.edu.au/magicmacros/). He is also a developer of Statulator–an online collection of statistical tools for conducting descriptive analyses, sample size calculations and some statistical tests (http://statulator.com).

Teaching and supervision

Dr Dhand coordinates a Research and Enquiry unit of study offered to DVM students, which aims to develop skills in evidence based practice, experimental design, statistical analyses and critical evaluation of research literature. He also teaches Data Analysis for Epidemiologic Research to Veterinary Public Health postgraduate students.

Current projects

Dr Dhand is involved in a number of research projects investigating infectious disease epidemiology and evaluating options for their control. He leads a Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) funded project to investigate the effectiveness of an ovine Johne’s disease vaccine and is a key member of research teams evaluating Hendra virus risk perceptions of horse owners (funded by Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, RIRDC) and investigating attitudes of vets and vet nurses towards Q fever vaccination (funded by National Health and Medical Research Council, NHMRC). He is also contributing to investigation of environmental and husbandry risk factors for Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome (funded by Fisheries Research and Development Corporation, FRDC).

Dr Dhand also provides epidemiological and statistical input to many infectious disease projects in developing countries. He leads a project to identify innovative approaches for controlling brucellosis in India and is involved in three Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) funded projects aimed to (1) improve fish health management in marine finfish aquaculture in Indonesia, (2) develop and test a village-level biosecurity system in Cambodia, and to (3) enhance transboundary livestock disease risk management in Lao PDR.
