Emily is a paediatrician and paediatric endocrinologist who is currently undertaking a PhD at the Menzies School of Health Research. Her clinical experience of the increasing burden of type 2 diabetes mellitus in children, particularly in remote communities led her to pursue further research in the field. Her PhD will describe the epidemiology of youth-onset type 2 diabetes in Indigenous populations and will evaluate the contribution of hyperglycaemia in pregnancy on childhood growth and cardiometabolic parameters. She is supported by a NHMRC Postgraduate Scholarship and the Douglas and Lola Douglas Scholarship in Medical Science from the Australian Academy of Science. Emily enjoys learning about Indigenous culture and is passionate about improving the health of Indigenous children.
