  • My field of interest is paediatic and respiratory epidemiology, particularly
    asthma co-morbidities, maternal asthma, risk factors for pediatric asthma and
    allergies. My research uses large register-based linked data as well as twin
    data. The methods used in my research include risk factor epidemiology,
    mediation analysis, genetic epidemiology techniques. twin modelling, negative
    control studies. I have also done research in Indigenous health, rural
    suicide and mental health, as well as bushfire research. My goal is to apply
    the best epidemiological methods and big data to answer questions around the
    causes and consequences of asthma.
