Cate is an early career expert in statistics, with a Masters in Applied Statistics from Swinburne University, and specialises in the analysis of large, longitudinal datasets.

Cate’s current focus is on women’s health through the life-course, and the economic implications of intervening to improve maternal and infant health. Other current projects include the use of health economic techniques in evaluating social care interventions, investigating the role of the workplace in preconception health, and an evaluation of high-quality education on improving academic outcomes for children experiencing social disadvantage.
