Personal profile

Research interests

Will is a PhD student at the Menzies School of Health research. He is researching the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in northern Australia and the cost of drug-resistant and -susceptible infections in Northern Territory hospitals. This research has included work on developing an interactive AMR surveillance system and piloting a tool to enable antimicrobial stewardship in remote Aboriginal primary health care. Will is passionate about improving health data systems and surveillance of infectious diseases, using accurate estimates of the burden of disease to inform evidence-based decision making and the impact of social determinants of health on the epidemiology of infectious diseases. Before moving to Darwin, Will did a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in epidemiology at The University of Melbourne, and has previously worked at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity as a research assistant.
