Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently the Professor of Clinical Epidemiology in the Centre for Research in Evidence Based Practice at Bond University (0.5 FTE), and work in general practice half-time.

I was a member of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (2008-2012), the Economic Sub-Committee of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (2005-2013), and Therapeutic Guidelines (Cardiovascular) advisory group (2011-12). I am a member of the advisory group for the National Prescribing Service and the editorial board of Diagnostic Imaging Pathways.

My research areas of interest are improving the use of diagnostic, screening and monitoring tests in general practice.

I have published 82 ISI listed articles, with an average citation rate of 21 (average in health services research is 4 and in internal medicine is 9), including in BMJ (9), PLOS medicine (2), Archives of Internal Medicine (1) and MJA (9). My total grant income is approximately $4 million.

I have also presented invited talks for the:

  • International Laboratory Clinical Chemists Scientific Conference in Grainau, Germany
  • Royal College of Pathologists Australia scientific conference
  • Sydney's School of Public Health
  • Melbourne University School of Population and Global Health
  • St Luke's International Hospital annual scientific meeting, Tokyo, Japan.

Statement for HDR students

I have supervised higher degree research students investigating:

  • Novel diagnostic tests for dengue fever
  • Methods for preventing over diagnosis
  • Methods for improving the use of clinical prediction rules in clinical settings
