Personal profile


Lachlan Dalli is a Research Fellow from the Stroke and Ageing Research Group, School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health, Monash University and a current recipient of a Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences Post-Doctoral Fellowship.

Lachlan holds a Bachelor in Biomedical Science (Honours) and a PhD in epidemiology. His current research is focussed on improving the quality of care and outcomes for people with stroke by generating new knowledge and clinical insights using Big Data. He has published >20 peer-reviewed articles in leading medical journals, including first-author publications in Neurology, Stroke and Hypertension.

Lachlan is an emerging leader in pharmacoepidemiology (i.e. the study of the utilisation and real-world effects of medications and vaccines in the population). His work in pharmacoepidemiology has generated novel evidence on the real-world safety and effectiveness of medications for secondary prevention of stroke, using Big Data from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. In 2022, Lachlan led an international team to develop a new reporting tool for medication adherence (TEN-SPIDERS) - which is now recommended by the EQUATOR network.

In his role as an epidemiologist for the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry (AuSCR), Lachlan has developed and applied new statistical methods to more reliably assess the quality of hospital care for patients with stroke. He has contributed to >10 reports for the AuSCR and >200 individualised hospital reports to support the direct translation of evidence to improve stroke care in Australia.
