Career Summary

Biography

Research Expertise
Together with my extensive epidemiological methodological experience, I have substantial experience conducting, analysing, interpreting and publishing on a range of areas of epidemiology. Environmental issues include arsenic, air pollution, disinfection by-products in drinking water, radiofrequency electromagnetic energy, solar ultraviolet radiation, effect of military service, and a range of infectious diseases associated with environmental factors (including listeriosis, tetanus, rabies, diarrhoeal and respiratory episodes). I also have considerable experience in biostatistics, nutritional and ophthalmic and sensory epidemiology, and cardiovascular disease, along with substantial activities in ageing, in childrens health, indigenous health, diabetes, asthma, physical activity, international health, and research in illicit drug use. In addition I am working in the areas of genetic and molecular epidemiology, and the health consequences of the built and industrial environment.

Teaching Expertise
Postgraduate coursework: I am Director of the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. I am responsible for coordinating the entire Graduate Diploma and Masters coursework components, and for convening all the Clinical Epidemiology postgraduate teaching. These courses are offered both on campus and by distance learning. I also teach into five of the courses regularly (Epi A, Epi B, Nutritional Epi, Clinical Epi and Research Protocol Design). Research Higher Degree Students: I currently co-supervise three PhD students - topics include: Treatment for Anorexia (Mel Hart); Diabetes prevention in indigenous communities (Jo Gwynn); Molecular aspects of dementia (Mark McEvoy); Undergraduate: I currently teach public health in the Undergraduate Medical program at the University of Newcastle. This involves teaching into years 1,2 and 5 of the Bachelor of Medicine course, and co-ordinating the Longitudinal Task in Year 5. Previous teaching commitments. I was program convenor, Graduate Diploma in Public Health program, National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH), Australian National University, from 1996-2001, and taught Introductory and advanced epidemiology courses. From 1992 to 1994 I taught into both the undergraduate and postgraduate public health programs at the University of Sydney. Not counting current PhD students, I have co-supervised ten PhD students who have now graduated (Nb: co-supervision mandatory at Centres I have worked at since 1995) Dr Parker Magin - Skin disease and psychosocial factors Vicki Flood, Nutritional Epidemiology folate and B12; Dr Hasnat Milton , Arsenic mitigation in Bangladesh; Dr Kamalini Lokuge, Diarrhoea in Bangladesh; Marion Currie, Post-natal Depression. Dr Leslee Roberts, Randomised controlled trial of infection control interventions on diarrhoea and respiratory infection in child care. Dr Chris Kelman, Health Outcomes and Implantable Devices: a record-linkage historical cohort study. Dr Jie Jin Wang, Impact of Sensory Impairment on independent living of older Australians. Dr Geetha Ranmuthugala, Disinfection by-products in drinking water and bladder micronuclei. Dr Robyn Lucas, Biomarkers of Social Disadvantage. I also act as an examiner, having marked 4 PhD and 2 Masters theses for University of Sydney; 1 PhD thesis for Queensland Institute of Technology; 1 PhD thesis for Monash University; 2 Masters theses for Australian National University; 3 PhD and 2 Masters theses for University of Newcastle.

Objective To examine effect modification between genetic susceptibility to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and dietary antioxidant or fish consumption on AMD risk. Design Pooled data analysis of population-based cohorts. Participants Participants from the Blue Mountains Eye Study (BMES) and Rotterdam Study (RS). Methods Dietary intakes of antioxidants (lutein/zeaxanthin [LZ], ß-carotene, and vitamin C), long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and zinc were estimated from food frequency questionnaires. The AMD genetic risk was classified according to the number of risk alleles of CFH (rs1061170) or ARMS2 (rs10490924) as low (no or 1 risk allele) or high (=2 risk alleles). Interactions between dietary intake and genetic risk levels were assessed. Associations between dietary intake and AMD risk were assessed comparing the highest with the 2 lower intake tertiles by genetic risk subgroups using discrete logistic regression, conducted in each study separately and then using pooled data. Participants without AMD lesions at any visit were controls. We adjusted for age and sex in analyses of each cohort sample and for smoking status and study site in pooled-data analyses. Main Outcome Measures All 15-year incident late AMD cases were confirmed by chief investigators of the Beaver Dam Eye Study, BMES, and RS. Intergrader reproducibility was assessed in an early AMD subsample, with 86.4% agreement between BMES and RS graders, allowing for a 1-step difference on a 5-step AMD severity scale. Results In pooled data analyses, we found significant interaction between AMD genetic risk status and LZ intake (P = 0.0009) but nonsignificant interactions between genetic risk status and weekly fish consumption (P = 0.05) for risk of any AMD. Among participants with high genetic risk, the highest intake tertile of LZ was associated with a >20% reduced risk of early AMD, and weekly consumption of fish was associated with a 40% reduced risk of late AMD. No similar association was evident among participants with low genetic risk. No interaction was detected between ß-carotene or vitamin C and genetic risk status. Conclusions Protection against AMD from greater LZ and fish consumption in persons with high genetic risk based on 2 major AMD genes raises the possibility of personalized preventive interventions. ©2014 by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
