Trends and inequalities in cancer survival in New Zealand

Matthew Soeberg completed his PhD at the University of Otago, Wellington in 2012 where he was supervised by Professor Tony Blakely, Associate Professor Diana Sarfati and Geoff Fougere.

Matthew’s PhD examined trends and inequalities in cancer survival in New Zealand (1991-2004), using relative survival and excess mortality rate modelling with linked census and cancer registry data.

Matthew has a strong interest in maximising the relevance of epidemiological research to policy, practice and improved patient outcomes. Matthew is currently working as a research fellow at the University of Sydney's Cancer Epidemiology research group, where he will be analysing data from the Australian Mesothelioma Registry, involved in the design and analysis of data linkage studies, identifying research opportunities and managing those projects.
