Prof

Julie Simpson

 

Professor Simpson is a NHMRC Senior Research Fellow (2016-20), Head of the Biostatistics Unit at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, leader of the Biostatistics node of the Melbourne Clinical and Translational Science platform, course coordinator of the Master of Biostatistics, and chief investigator of the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence for Biostatistics (ViCBiostat).

Prof.

Simpson has 25 years experience working in biostatistics teaching and research
positions, and has led and collaborated on many research projects (laboratory, clinical trials and large-scale population studies), illustrating her broad knowledge of study design and statistical methodology.

Her primary area of research is the bridging of novel statistical and mathematical modelling
approaches to inform treatment policy for malaria and she has been an advisor to WHO, Medicines for Malaria Venture and the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network regarding dosing regimens for current and new antimalarial drugs. Her research has generated evidence that has led to revised dosing recommendations for antimalarial regimens and improved sampling designs for antimalarial pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic studies.

Her other main research interest is the application of complex statistical methods to answer important public health questions in longitudinal observational cohorts, in particular, the implementation of multiple imputation for handling missing data.
