Biography

Andrea is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Epidemiology for Policy and Practice group at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health.

She has a background in science and has recently completed her PhD at the Melbourne School of Population & Global Health where she investigated new approaches to identify clinic-level barriers and develop strategies to strengthen immunisation service delivery, community engagement and vaccine uptake in the Western Cape Province, South Africa.

Andrea’s current work is focused on community-based implementation of strategies to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, particularly relating to cardiovascular disease, and will contribute to work associated with the implementation of National CVD Guidelines.
