Research

Research keywords

  • Epidemiology

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.
