DSM staff profile

Ms Gabrielle Davie

PositionSenior Research Fellow
DepartmentDepartment of Preventive and Social Medicine (DSM)
QualificationsBSc(Hons) MBios
Research summaryInjury prevention, utilising administrative health data
Teaching

Before joining IPRU in 2005, Gabrielle worked at the Wellington campus of the University of Otago consulting and teaching biostatistics. She has also worked in the same roles at the Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.

Research

Gabrielle’s research expertise is predominantly in the areas of injury and utilising administrative health data. Her areas of particular interest include injury surveillance research methodology, alcohol-related harm, and improving outcomes following injury.

Gabrielle is currently Deputy Director of the Injury Prevention Research Unit and manages IPRU’s team of Data Managers / Programmers. She is also co-lead of the Dunedin School of Medicine’s Administrative Data for Health Research Hub and the Principal Investigator on two projects using Statistics New Zealand’s Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI).

National routinely collected administrative health data either underpins or adds value to three recent Health Research Council funded projects for which Gabrielle is a named investigator: ‘Creating Safer Workplaces’ (2016-2019) and the ‘Subsequent Injury Study’ (2015-2017) are both being led by colleagues in IPRU, and the third is a joint HRC project with the University of Auckland examining the preventability of pre-hospital injury deaths (2015-2017).
