Positions

Overview

OverviewText1

  • I obtained my Honours Bachelor of Science (majoring in Human Biology and Mathematics) from the University of Toronto in 1999.  I then moved to Australia and obtained my Master of Public Health (specialising in Epidemiology and Biostatistics) in 2006 and my PhD 2014 from the University of Melbourne.  My PhD assessed the impact of missing data in a longitudinal cohort study on the risks of colorectal cancer and mortality associated with body size change.

    From 2007 to 2012, I worked in the Cancer Epidemiology Centre in Cancer Council Victoria.  My research focussed on using the Victorian Cancer Registry Data to estimate the risks of second primary cancers and analyse cancer clusters.  From 2014-2016, I took on the role of Research Fellow (Biostatistics) in the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Melbourne and Clinical Biostatistician at Western Health.  Currently, I am a Research Fellow (Biostatistics) in the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Melbourne and School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University. 

    My research interests include the use of multiple imputation to handle missing data in longitudinal studies, how to deal with missing data in causal inferential methods and meta-analysis including network meta-analyses.
