Public Health Medicine Specialist
I am an epidemiologist and undertake epidemiological analysis to support the work carried out at Auckland Regional Public Health Service. For example, I have been involved in modelling the 2017 mumps outbreak, and an analysis of verotoxigenic E. coli cases. I also support the analysis of data collected during foodborne illness outbreaks. As well as epidemiological work, I have been involved in strategic planning around the development of indicators to monitor the quality of our work.
After training in medicine, I worked as a junior doctor in all three large hospitals in the Auckland region, as well as in the Hunter Valley region in New South Wales, Australia. Since then, I retrained in public health medicine, and have been working in academia and the health sector in epidemiological and public health roles. I have an interest in skin health, the health effects of excess sugar intake, and biostatistical methods.
