Personal profile

Biography

Dr Lyle Turner is a research fellow and data scientist within the Department of General Practice. Through his primary role as biostatistician for the Melbourne East Monash General Practice database (MAGNET), Lyle pursues research around his interest in linkage and analysis of routinely collected datasets to inform policy and health service delivery.

Lyle’s background is grounded in data – its collection, storage, analysis and interpretation. All data has a story to tell, and he strongly believes that research has a role to play in shaping how and why such data are collected, and what impact it can have on society. Lyle has been involved in a variety of research both in Australia and the UK, working on projects linked to health services delivery (City University London) and epidemiology and public health (Queensland University of Technology and public health (QUT). His current research interests relate to the use of routinely collected General Practice data (MAGNET) to examine issues around preventive care and chronic disease management in General Practice and its impact on acute care utilisation.
