SUMMARY OF PROFESSIONAL HISTORY:                                       

  • 2019: Associate Dean Research, College of Nursing and Midwifery, Charles Darwin University.
  • 2014-present: Research Fellow at the Menzies School of Health Research, coordinating several projects including the implementation of the Supportive Care Needs Assessment Tool for Indigenous People (SCNAT-IP) into routine cancer care, and the Better Cardiac Care for Indigenous People in Queensland Data Linkage Project (BCCDLP), for the Queensland Department of Health. I am an investigator on both these projects. I am a co-investigator on the Screening Matters Study, an investigation of Indigenous women’s attitudes to cervical screening. I am also an investigator on the Patterns of Care for Indigenous people with Cancer project and the Breast Cancer incidence, mortality and survival Review.  Until recently, I managed the National Indigenous Cervical Screening Project (NISCP), a data-linkage study of screening and cervical cancer outcomes in Australian Indigenous women.
  • 2011-2013: Postdoctoral Fellow in the Section on Cancer Surveillance at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Lyon, France, part of the World Health Organisation.  I established a program of work to investigate the burden of cancer among Indigenous people globally and forged strong and enduring collaborations with international Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers to facilitate this work. I published several seminal reports in high ranking journals,  including the Lancet Oncology, on cancer incidence for Indigenous people in Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada, and cancer among Indigenous children globally. I continue to work in partnership with the Section to expand this program of work.
  • 2006-2010: PhD Candidate UQ and QIMR, conducting an epidemiological study of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survival among Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Queensland, Australia.   
  • 2002 -2007: Project manager of the Australian Cancer Study (ACS): a molecular epidemiological study of oesophageal and ovarian cancer and the Australian Endometrial Cancer Study (ANECS). I established these studies in major treatment centres throughout Australia, employed and supervised local and interstate research staff.  To date, findings of these studies have been published in over 16 papers in national and international peer reviewed journals.
  • 1996 to 2001: Project manager of the Second Australian National Blood Pressure Study (ANBP2), a cardiovascular outcome trial of the treatment of hypertension in the elderly, based at the University of Queensland. Research nurse for the Bayer Lipid Study and ANBP2.
  • 1984-1997: Twelve years as a registered nurse in emergency, intensive care and medical units in Alice Springs Hospital and The Wesley Hospital.
