Earl Duncan is an ACEMS Associate Investigator at the Queensland University of Technology. He has previously worked for the Queensland Government as a data analyst and also the Wesley Medical Research Institute as a biostatistician. His research has made contributions to prostate cancer and breast cancer research, with recent efforts focusing on spatial modelling through Bayesian hierarchical models.
