Jiunn-Yih is a medically trained epidemiologist.

He completed his Master of Public Health (2004) and Doctor of Public Health (2015) both at the Menzies.

Before joining Menzies, he worked at the NT Centre for Disease Control on the surveillance of sexually transmitted infections and blood borne viruses for 11 years, and had accumulated extensive experience in both research and disease surveillance in these areas.

He also lectured for the Menzies’ Master of Public Health course for 1.5 years teaching epidemiology, biostatistics, research design and research methods, disease control and sexual and reproductive health. He had also taught in Menzies’ STATA training courses.  

He joined the Menzies in 2016 to work on the NHMRC funded data linkage study of NT children’s development health, education and wellbeing as well as the Linking Northern Territory and Australian Government project.

He is currently conducting a data-linkage study using linked hearing surveillance data for NT children to investigate the impact of diagnosed hearing loss on early childhood development, school attendance and education achievements. Another study he is working on investigates the population level impact on NT children’s hearing outcomes of the various polyvalent pneumococcal vaccines introduced into the NT childhood immunisation schedule over time.
