Clare is the Study Coordinator for the Centre for Research Excellence in Aboriginal Sexual Health and Blood Borne Viruses, part of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute’s Infection and Immunity theme. Prior to joining SAHMRI, Clare spent many years at Flinders, firstly with the Research Centre for Injury Studies and then with the Department of Rehabilitation and Aged Care. Clare's long association with Flinders is acknowledged through her Senior Research Fellow academic status, nominally with the Research Centre for Injury Studies.

Clare's current research interests are in the area of sexual transmitted infections and blood-borne viruses in Aboriginal populations. She is coordinating a program of research which will establish an STI and BBV sentinel surveillance network and contribute to continuing quality improvement in Aboriginal health services. She is also involved in related data linkage activities in the area of BBVs and treatment outcomes. In the field of injury research, Clare’s ongoing research interests primarily focus on injury outcomes, serious injury in early childhood, and falls surveillance and prevention. She also has a long-standing interest in aged care service planning, research improving older people's welfare and quality of life, and healthy ageing. Clare maintains a strong interest in disease classification and coding and administrative data linkage for use in epidemiologic studies.
