  • Rheumatology


I am a rheumatologist at Canberra Rheumatology, honorary visiting medical officer at Canberra Hospital and a PhD candidate at The Australian National University with an interest in clinical research with an emphasis on quality improvement and patient centred outcomes. A large focus of my current research is standardising outcomes in interventions that support medication adherence in rheumatology, as the fellow and co-chair of the Outcome Measures in Rheumatology - Medication Adherence working group. My other research interests include secondary fracture prevention through fracture liaison services, transitional care in rheumatology and qualitative research.
