I commenced working with the Research Centre for Injury Studies (RCIS) in November 2011 after 6 years in the drug and alcohol research sector. Prior to this, my background was primarily as a frontline worker in disability and mental health services.

Key responsibilities

One of my roles in the Centre is the day-to-day administration of the Australian Spinal Cord Injury Register (ASCIR) on behalf of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) under the supervision of RCIS Director, Prof James E Harrison. A key output from the ASCIR is the Spinal cord injury, Australia annual series. I also support other areas of the Centre's work program by analysing data from the National Hospital Morbidity Database (NHMD), the National Mortality Database (NMD), the National Coronial Information System (NCIS) and similar datasets, and preparing reports as needed.
