I am a NHMRC Investigator and leader of the Clinical Cancer Epidemiology Lab at Flinders University. The Clinical Cancer Epidemiology Lab aims to deliver actionable prediction strategies and breakthroughs that improve the lives of patients with cancer. We will achieve this through epidemiological research which honours the contributions of patients who have enrolled their clinical data and experiences to science.

Our research group is always interested in identifying and working with PhD and Honours students. Projects would be suitable to students with an undergraduate degree in pharmacy, medical sciences, biostatistics or the like, with an interest in precision oncology and clinical epidemiology. Please contact me if you are interested.
