Bio

I am a mathematician and postdoctoral fellow in the Centre for Biosecurity Risk Analysis (CEBRA, School of Biosciences) and the Centre for Environmental and Economic Research (CEER), at The University of Melbourne. I have an interest in biochemical systems and parameter estimation, with a particular focus on testing models for structural global identifiability. This has led to some involvement with infectious disease modellers through a local workshop in 2019 (https://www.matrix-inst.org.au/events/influencing-public-health-policy-with-data-informed-mathematical-models-of-infectious-diseases/) which produced a publication: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.epidem.2020.100393 I also worked on a malaria project with the School of Population and Global Health at The University of Melbourne. (The resultant paper is currently under review.) In my CEBRA/CEER employment I have undertaken various data analysis tasks. Most recently I have worked on a project for the New South Wales Environment Protection Authority on chemical risk prioritisation. The project scraped the scientific literature to find the research interest (in Web of Science) relating to chemicals and adverse effects on the environment. We use this as a substitute for lab-based assessments of harmfulness as often such data is not available. I expect that the scraping code developed for this project may have other applications where the scientific literature can act as a proxy for some quantity that is difficult to measure.
