Biography:

Teresa is passionate about research that generates positive impact on the population and health policy. She started her career in medical research and later retrained as an epidemiologist. Teresa leads a group on antimicrobial resistance at the Menzies School of Health Research where her focus is on developing tools to monitor, share and use disease surveillance data. Such data are essential to determine the biological and social drivers of antimicrobial resistance. Teresa works collaboratively with infectious disease modellers, informaticians, policy-makers and social scientists to determine drivers of antimicrobial resistance, in particular focusing on low-resource settings (regional Australia and Timor-Leste).

Teresa is enthusiastic about diversity of thought , partnering together to achieve common goals and building interdisciplinary professional networks. In 2017, she founded the Women in Tropical Health (WITH) network and in 2018, together with Menzies' development team, launched the first of its kind mentoring program. The Catalyse mentorship program matches women working in regional areas with mentors from sectors including business and health industry to provide a holistic approach to improving career satisfaction, institutional productivity and supporting a diverse workforce.
