Summary: Maternity leave from Statistical Analyst for South Australian Department for Education and Child Development
Employment: Statistical Analyst : South Australian Department for Education and Child Development
I see quality statistics and the use of them in decision-making as paramount to enabling governments to make wide-reaching, positive changes to people's lives. Since finishing my honours degree in statistics in 2008, I worked on a number of projects that provided information about Australia's marginalised populations at the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This motivated me to specialise in population research. My goals are to improve the translation of statistics into policy, and to inspire future generations to use their quantitative skills to benefit our global community. I hope to achieve these goals by being an influential leader in the Australian government, and by founding a mentoring scheme involving statistical projects for developing countries. Studying an MPhil in Epidemiology at the University of Cambridge and being a Gates Cambridge Scholar are wonderful opportunities that will help me along this path and I feel very excited and privileged.
