Dr Rachel Tham


"I began my environmental epi research career journey with as a PhD student with CAR in 2013-2017. My research training and knowledge translation was enabled and enhanced by connecting and working with the CAR collaborators and their students and post-docs. I have been able to contribute to multiple facets beyond my own research projects including contributing to sub-committee activities, organising and presenting at seminars and conferences, writing and reviewing grant applications, providing mentoring, and writing submissions to government enquiries, to name but a few activities and achievements. The support, training, and experiences provided by CAR have enabled me to hold postdoctoral research fellow positions and be awarded with competitive research funding. CAR was instrumental in supporting and shaping my research career and I have found life-long friends, colleagues and mentors who I value most highly.
