Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy


I graduated with an MSc (1st Class Hons) in Statistics from the University of Auckland in 2002. Since then my applied research experience has been mainly on health-related topics, working in research teams at the Centre for Health Services Research and Policy, at the Centre of Methods and Policy Application in the Social Sciences (both at the University of Auckland), and more recently the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at AUT University. Currently I am pursuing a PhD in Social Gerontology investigating the association between social relations, and subjective well-being in people of advanced age.
