Biography

Dr Michelle Gatton completed her PhD in Medical Engineering (QUT) in 2000. She has a BSc(Hon) majoring in applied mathematics and statistics, and environmental pollution and health. Between 2000 and 2012 Michelle was a Research Fellow at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) where she was head of the Malaria Drug Resistance and Chemotherapy Laboratory (2010-2012). In 2008 Michelle was awarded an NHMRC Career Development Award (Level 1) in Population Health. Michelle joined QUT in 2013 and is currently Associate Professor and Discipline Leader of Public Health in the School of Public Health and Social Work. Michelle’s research interests focus primarily on mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria. Recent research projects include modelling the transmission of drug-resistance malaria parasites, quantifying the impact of malaria control activities, and investigating parasite dormancy following treatment with the artemisinin class of drugs. Michelle has a keen interest in ensuring the quality of diagnostic tools used for clinical diagnosis of malaria, and regularly works with the World Health Organization, Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) and Australian Army Malaria Institute on projects related to malaria diagnostics.
