Amanda Rojek

 

Amanda Rojek is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Integrated Critical Care Research at the Department of Medicine and Radiology and a registrar in Emergency Medicine at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Her academic interest is in advancing clinical research during emerging infectious disease outbreaks.

She is experienced in setting-up and conducting research in outbreak and outbreak-prone settings, including in resource-poor settings.
Amanda graduated from the University of Queensland Medical School in 2011. She is a Rhodes Scholar and she obtained an MSc in Global Health and and a PhD from the University of Oxford. Her PhD was undertaken under Prof. Peter Horby at the Epidemic Diseases Research Group in the Nuffield Department of Medicine, where her thesis focussed on improving the clinical research response to disease outbreaks. Her work included frontline clinical research based in Sierra Leone during the Ebola epidemic in west Africa (2013-2016), and she subsequently led a multi-centre project to assess outbreak vulnerability in refugee camps. She also has a portfolio of structural and methodological work focussed on improving the clinical trial response to disease outbreaks.
Alongside her academic publishing, Amanda has taught on a number of postgraduate public health programs internationally, and for the Clinical Research During Outbreaks (CREDO) training curriculum. She has also co-authored two textbook chapters on Ebola Virus Disease. Amanda continues as an Honorary Senior Clinical Researcher at the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Heath at the University of Oxford.
