Rebecca’s research revolves around the discipline of biostatistics that underpins the use of statistical methods in the collection, preparation and analysis of data for clinical studies. Her primary area of interest is in the improvement of maternal and child health outcomes, where she is involved in a program of large randomised controlled trials in rural Bangladesh and Malawi to assess new solutions for anaemia control with the goal of improving pregnancy outcomes, maternal wellbeing, infection risk and child growth and development.


Rebecca is an early career biostatistician in the Pasricha Lab, joining WEHI in June 2020 following a move to Melbourne in 2019 to complete her Masters of Biostatistics. She completed her PhD in 2018 as a recipient of a Paediatric Freemasons Research Fellowship – University of Otago, NZ, where she studied the effects of sleep disordered breathing in children on academic performance. Rebecca is an Accredited Graduate Statistician by the Statistical Society of Australia.
