Projects

I have experience in large-scale project management, data collection and data analysis for multiple longitudinal projects. I enjoy working with both population and individual-level data and being able to zoom in and out of various issues and their wider context.

I have a decade of experience managing small and large-scale projects from inception to final write-up. I pride myself on being forward-thinking, with methodological and statistical rigour, and succinct writing.

Statistically, I’m familiar with everything from basic t-tests to longitudinal structural equation modelling and can learn just about anything.

Current Projects

Principal Health and Wellbeing

I’m a Partner Investigator on the longitudinal Principal Health and Wellbeing project which examines the occupational health of school leaders around the world. Since 2010 I have managed the technical side of the project, and in that role I’m responsible for all data collection and management, respondent database management, respondent queries and the website. The Principal Health and Wellbeing project has led the way investigating the occupational health and risk factors for educational leaders in Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. The reports from our research have helped shape both governmental and private policy and practice for the better.

Past projects

I was an Adjunct Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Economics (Monash University) where I worked with the AQoL team from 2007-2017.  I was involved in new question creation/design and data analysis as well as the creation of utility weights for the AQoL-8D by doing Time Trade Off, Person Trade Off and Willingness To Pay interviews with members of the general public.  I was responsible for helping design the AQoL website and I was the webmaster for that site until it was ported into the University system at the end of 2016.  As part of the AQoL team, I assisted in the creation of an internationally-recognised health-related quality of life questionnaire (AQoL-8D) which helps clinicians and researchers measure overall quality of life and the effects of treatments.

Our team at the Centre for Health Economics conducted the international Multi-attribute Instrument Comparison study.  We won the 2017 International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcome Research (ISPOR) Award for Excellence in Application in Pharmacoeconomics and Health Outcomes Research. This award recognizes outstanding research in the field of pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research methodology, and was awarded for the 2016 research paper: Measuring the Sensitivity and Construct Validity of 6 Utility Instruments in 7 Disease Areas.
