Background

I am currently in my final year of advanced training with the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine. At the end of 2015 I completed my PhD entitled “Obesity, diabetes and disability –predicting risk, pathways and projections”. During the course of my PhD, I developed skills particularly in epidemiology, statistical methods and systematic reviews. My interest is in public health research and translating research into practice.
