My well-established research foci are both theoretical and applied, having authored or co-authored around 200 peer-reviewed articles in national and international journals. Since 2006, my internationally significant theoretical and methodological research contributions have included: (i) conceptualising and deriving a new method for the estimation of the Trauma and Injury Severity Score (TRISS); (ii) developing a novel multivariate hierarchical Bayesian approach for measuring agreement in method comparison studies; (iii) developing and extending methods for the analysis and aggregation of n-of-1 trials; and (iv) devising and implementing an innovative approach to the estimation of attribution and associated credible regions. These methods are already being adopted and applied in the literature.My applied research over this period is largely of an epidemiologic nature, focused on Pacific health, with important health policy implications. Many peer-reviewed journal articles explicitly deal with the social determinants of health, often embedded in local contexts but motivated by national or international public health priority areas seeking to reduce health inequalities. Implicit in successfully undertaking such public health research in the New Zealand context is having an understanding of the implications of the Treaty of Waitangi, and a commitment to working with marginalized peoples.
