Her research focuses on mathematical biology in areas such as wound healing, tumour growth and epidemiology. Jennifer was awarded a PhD in 2009 from Queensland University of Technology on “Mathematical modelling of chronic wound healing”. From 2010 – 2013, she was at the University of Oxford developing mathematical models for the spread of resistance to antimalarial drugs. From 2014 – April 2017 Jennifer was a Lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University. In May 2017 she joined the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne.
