Dr Jacqueline Amy Hannam

BSc(Hons), PhD

Areas of expertise

My research interest is in clinical pharmacology. I completed my Ph.D. in Anaesthesiology in 2013, investigating the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of anaesthetic and analgesic drugs when given in combination. In particular, I focussed on developing models to inform dosing in children, and extending some current applications of PKPD models in the clinical setting. Other areas of research I have been involved in include anaesthesiology more generally, patient safety and improvement of healthcare quality, paediatrics and simulation in healthcare.
