Prior to her academic career, Jennifer has diverse experience working in the health system as a pharmacist, in both the United Kingdom and Australia. She has completed a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Pharmacy, and has promoted the quality use of medicines in clinical and policy settings. Jennifer’s research has retained a focus on the evaluation of health services, models of care, and health technologies including pharmaceuticals.
