Biography

Dr Haider Mannan is a Lecturer in biostatistics at Centre for Health Research and the School of Medicine, Western Sydney University. He has three roles-research, teaching and providing statistical consulting service to staffs and students. He has a research track record in the field of lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking, diet, eating disorders), chronic conditions (e.g. obesity, diabetes) and treatments (e.g. CABG, angioplasty stenting) associated with cardiovascular disease with a focus on risk prevention using policy modelling. His other areas of expertise include functioning and disability among the elderly and evaluation of population health interventions. His biostatistical expertise is wide including regression models for clustered and longitudinal data (e.g. multilevel mixed effects, GEE models), continuous, binary (e.g. logistic regression), survival (e.g. Cox regression, Weibull regression), categorical and ordinal outcomes, nonparametric methods, analysis of small studies and state transition models (e.g. Markov simulation/model, latent Markov model), all in the context of epidemiological/medical studies. He has published software for disease risk modelling using SAS macros. He has published two monographs,50 peer reviewed articles in epidemiology/biostatistics with 23 as first authored and 16 in category 'A' journals including American Journal of Epidemiology, Preventive Medicine, European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, International Journal of Obesity, Obesity, Appetite, Annals of Epidemiology, European Journal of Nutrition, Accident Analysis and Prevention and Statistical Methods in Medical Research. He teaches and coordinates an intermediate biostatistics unit for Master of Epidemiology, MPH and MHSc courses during spring semester. He teaches introductory biostatistics to MBBS students, conducts workshops on multilevel and multivariate regression models. He is supervising one doctoral student, co-supervising two doctoral and one honours student. In 2017 he completed thesis supervision of an MPH student.

He is a co-chief investigator in two nationally competitive grants worth 400,000 AUD, one on modelling the relationship between obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the Australian population (NHMRC funded) and the other on developing, validating and using a disability policy model to better target the prevention or reduction of disability in the Australian population (ARC funded). He has an independent research program on investigating causal relationships between infant feeding factors and childhood obesity and growth factors in Western Sydney. His other research is on biostatistical methods and life expectancy gains associated with smoking reductions due to targeting of high risk population subgroups compared to the entire population in Australia. He collaborates extensively with centre and external researchers. He has been involved in projects on eating disorders, mental health, CVD prevention, oral health, constipation and COPD treatment. As a biostatistician he has designed and performed sample size estimations for cohort, prevalence, multiple baseline studies; single and multicentred individual and cluster randomized trials.

He earned a Ph.D. in biostatistics and epidemiology from University of Western Australia with distinction in 2008, and then worked for 6 years at the Monash University Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine and James Cook University as Senior Research Fellow in the area of chronic disease risk prevention. At JCU he obtained research funding from CSIRO preventative health flagship, Medibank Private Limited and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. Previously, he was Assistant Professor at University of Dhaka. He has presented at many international conferences worldwide including 24 refereed conference papers. He has authored 4 consultancy and government research reports.

At Western Sydney University Dr Mannan since joining in August 2015 has been a co-chief investigator in two nationally competitive grants, and an industry grant, namely:

1. 2011-current    $179,362                ARC grant Chief Investigator C (CI-C), for, "Developing a disability policy model to target the prevention or reduction of limitations on functioning and wellbeing".

2. 2011-current    $217,430                NHMRC and National Heart Foundation (NHF) grant Chief Investigator D (CI-D), for, "Predicting the impact of current obesity and diabetes trends on future prevalence of cardiovascular disease in Australia".

3. 2016                $29,000                  Baxter Healthcare 2016 Ideas Lab sponsorship, external grant, Baxter Healthcare Pty Limited.

 

He has been collaborating extensively with Professor Phillipa Hay in eating disorders. He is leading a series of projects on life expectancy gains associated with smoking reductions obtained through targeting of various Australian population subgroups for which smoking prevalence is higher than the general population and therefore have higher risks of mortality due to smoking related diseases - all in context of the government policy to reduce smoking prevalence to 10% by 2020. He is collaborating extensively with the centre and external WSU researchers in several other projects contributing to the development of around 10 peer reviewed publications. To date he has published two non-peer reviewed books and 50 peer reviewed research articles in various public health and biostatistics journals, out of which 14 are in ‘A’ category journals, namely, Preventive Medicine, American Journal of Epidemiology, International Journal of Obesity, Obesity (2 papers), Appetite, European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, Annals of Epidemiology (2 papers), Accident Analysis & Prevention, European Journal of Nutrition and Statistical Methods in Medical Research. He also has published 24 international conference abstracts/proceedings (peer reviewed) in the area of public health, 2 national conference proceedings and 4 consultancy and government research reports in Australia and Canada.
