Biography

Kate's broad research expertise is in epidemiology, public health and the improvement of health at a population level through the prevention of and reduction of chronic disease. Kate's current research focus is in the control of cancer (specifically cancer screening) as well as obesity in high risk, marginalised populations and optimisation of healthcare access among these individuals. Kate coordinates and teaches on several population health and evidence-based medicine units in the MD degree as well the Epidemiology of Non-communicable Disease and Analytic Epidemiology in the Masters of Epidemiology. Kate began working at Western Sydney University in 2013 and most recently, was appointed as Lecturer in Population Health with the School of Medicine and Translational Health Research Institute.

Kate undertook a BSocSc in Anthropology (Manchester University) before working in the private sector for several years. Following a move to Australia, Kate began work in the health research sector at Sydney University before completing her MPH(Hons) there in 2012. Kate was awarded her PhD from Sydney University in 2016 and throughout her PhD continued to work on several projects with Sydney Medical School as well as teach epidemiology and public health. Kate's PhD focused on the management and screening of individuals at high risk of cancer due to a hereditary mutation.
