Research Biography

Eleonora has worked in the public health field and with population health data since 1995.  She is currently employed as a Research Fellow in Biostatistics in the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University working on the project, the Antecedents of Renal Disease in Aboriginal children & young people (ARDAC).  Prior to this position, she was at the School and Animal Veterinary Science, The University of Adelaide, as a post-doc researcher in epidemiology, working on a three-year project to reduce the occurrence of endemic disease and defect conditions in South Australian sheep by investigating a processor-based decision support system.  The project intended to identify ways to enhance the flow of animal health information to improve both on-farm and post-farm gate productivity and profitability.  She worked at the Telethon Kids Institute as a statistical analyst for nearly 18 months.  In this role, she provided statistical support to senior researchers in the Adelaide team to deliver high quality research around early child development. Her work involves analyses of datasets measuring the health, development and wellbeing of children in Australia including the wellbeing data for Australian school children, the developmental data for Australian children at school entry (Australian Early Development Census), and administrative data from government databases (NAPLAN).  For over 15 years, she was employed in the Discipline of Medicine at The University of Adelaide as a Senior Research Associate and at SA Health as a Senior Epidemiologist, in the area of surveillance of chronic disease and associated risk factors, survey methodology and population health data.  This work involves the planning and implementation of surveys, data management, advanced epidemiological analyses of the data, and preparation of reports and publications. 

Eleonora has authored 92 peer-reviewed publications, 11 as first author; over 60 reports; and 50 peer-reviewed oral presentations or poster publications.  She has completed her PhD in 2017 (topic “Surveillance of health status and health risk: the future of data collection using the telephone in Australia”) and a Masters of Public Health in 2001, both at The University of Adelaide; and a Bachelor of Degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and Bachelor of Degree Honours in Mathematics from the University of South Australia.  

Research Interests
