She has a broad environmental health background having worked in state and local government in environmental health policy and practice positions, and more recently in academia and research. Her major research focus is in quantifying the health effects of air pollution exposures and developing appropriate tools for exposure measurement. She has also led air pollution monitoring campaigns for individual projects including the Lane Cove tunnel Health Study and the Air Pollution, Mortality and Morbidity in Australian Adults (APMMA) Study, as well as for smaller seed funding grants. She has a special interest in understating the effects of urban exposures particularly traffic related air pollution, and more recently, woodsmoke pollution, un under-recognised but highly significant urban source of pollution. Additional research interests include the effects of indoor emissions from gas appliances, and investigating the potential for health impacts associated with energy transitions.
