  • Biography

    Lisa gained her initial dental degree from South Australia before completing both a Master and PhD degree in odontology at Lund University in Sweden. Since then, she has held numerous clinical academic positions that include La Trobe University, The University of Sydney, and The University of Western Australia.  Currently she is an Adjunct Professor in the International Research Collaborative, Oral Health and Equity at UWA.  Lisa has published extensively in peer reviewed journals and works collaboratively with Professor Marc Tennant, with whom both Professor Max Bulsara and Professor Jim Codde have also published with.

    Lisa’s appointment in the IHR will strengthen professional relationships between Notre Dame and UWA in dental research but also provide an opportunity to link Lisa’s interest and experience in rural and remote communities with a growing health research capacity being developed at Broome through the Nulungu Institute.
