Doctor Anna Wilkinson

Research Fellow


Ms. Anna Wilkinson is an early career public health researcher, with interests in epidemiology, biostatistics, maximising the use of data, and evaluating public health policy.

Anna completed a PhD in 2016, which focussed on HIV epidemiology, and followed this with a post-doctoral position at Cancer Council Victoria, expanding not only her public health content knowledge but quantitative analysis skills. To further build her theoretical knowledge, Anna commenced a Master of Biostatistics in 2017, Australia’s leading qualification in biostatistics, demonstrating a commitment to ongoing learning and a career in biostatistics.

Ms. Wilkinson has an extensive clinical background including working as a research nurse at the Alfred Hospital and Burnet Institute. Previously Anna has worked in diverse clinical settings, including in rural and remote Australia and in the UK. This breadth of clinical work has provided an important foundation for her public health research career.
