Trained as a clinical audiologist in Canada, I practised in Australia and completed my PhD at the University of Queensland on involving adults in their hearing healthcare. I completed a Masters of Public Health with distinction from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
My interests include evidence-based practices, clinical epidemiology, eHealth, public health, and health policies. I have published over 65 influential peer-reviewed publications with more than 100 different co-authors.
