I am a health services researcher specialising in the development and psychometric evaluation of patient-reported experience measures (PREMs) and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) for health service and system performance measurement. I also have several years’ experience analysing large population-based linked administrative datasets with the aim of better understanding value-based healthcare and equity measurement.

I completed my PhD at the Griffith University School of Nursing and Midwifery (ranked 1st in Australia and 2nd Worldwide in the Shanghai Ranking) where I was awarded the Griffith University Award of Excellence in a Research Thesis. My PhD was titled Patient Experiences in the Emergency Department: A multi-methods study. Using a multi-methods approach, I developed and psychometrically evaluated a new Emergency Department Patient-Reported Experience Measure (ED PREM). The ED PREM can be downloaded from the Patient Experience Journal: https://pxjournal.org/journal/vol10/iss2/9/

I am a Review Editor for the Frontiers in Public Health, Life-Course Epidemiology and Social Inequalities in Health section. I am also an inaugural member of the South Australia Health Generic PROM Selection Subcommittee.
