Designation

Associate Professor

 Biosketch  My academic qualifications include a PhD in applied epidemiology/biostatistics, a 2-year applied field epidemiology fellowship (European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training [EPIET]) and an MSc in epidemiology and biostatistics. I’m currently acting academic leader for research in my school and as such sit on numerous leadership/management structures within the College of Health Sciences. I also currently manage multiple staff members who provide biostatistical support to the College of Health Sciences. I have subsequently be invited to join the Scientific Council for the GBD, which I have accepted and have as such joined their key scientific decision-making body. The Council is comprised of leading experts in fields relating to the GBD. These data have much utility for further subnational analysis in South Africa and my intention is to further delve into cancer related mortality, DALYs, YLLs and risk factors at provincial level. These are likely to yield additional publications in high impact journals.

 

I have a 140+ publications (https://scholar.google.co.za/citations?user=-j6OIboAAAAJ&hl=en), most in ISI accredited international peer reviewed journals (10+ Lancet publications as a co-author). My research interests include: cancer epidemiology with an increased focus on the viral etiology thereof, global and regional underestimation of specific cancers in developing settings with poor data, development of analytical frameworks for health outcomes, area of advanced spatial-temporal modelling and Bayesian statistics, event history or survival analysis, risk determinant estimation of longitudinal outcomes within various statistical frameworks and application of inequality indices to health outcomes. I have been involved in a number of successful grant applications.

I have served as a reviewer for more than a dozen international ISI accredited journals (e.g. BMC Medicine, Bulletin of the World Health Organization, American Journal of Public Health) thus far. I’m also an associate editor for BMC Public Health and an official reviewer for Geospatial Health.

Official collaborator on Global Burden of Disease (GDB) Project (IHME, University of Washington) from 2015 and now also a member of the GBD Scientific Council.
