APPRISE is excited to announce the appointment of Priyanka Pillai as the APPRISE Health Informatics Specialist.
After an exhaustive talent search, Priyanka’s appointment is an important milestone for the APPRISE CRE. We look forward to greater co-ordination among researchers and data holders across Australia to improve our evidence base for responding to infectious disease emergencies.
Priyanka’s work will include scoping information needs across APPRISE and developing advice on appropriate software, policy, workflows and other change management processes to maximise the use and reuse of existing and emerging research datasets.
Priyanka comes from a bioinformatics background and her past research has included various informatics projects in the fields of infection and immunity research and cancer research.
