Susanna is a biostatistician skilled in using complex modelling techniques to investigate the spatial and spatio-temporal patterns of diseases, risk factors and outcomes in Queensland and across Australia. Her primary research interest is in using complex models to understand how cancer outcomes vary by location. Susanna has worked in epidemiological research for over a decade, and her publications have been cited over 1500 times. Susanna’s research has also been used by Queensland Health in setting their cancer care objectives.
Susanna previously worked at the School of Population Health, University of Queensland and was involved with large epidemiological projects, including the Australian Burden of Disease study, among others.
