Research interests and activities

June has played an important role in many Health Inequalities Research Programme (HIRP) projects. She is heavily involved in the data linkage and analyses of the New Zealand Census Mortality Study (NZCMS) and CancerTrends. She is involved in the Healthier Lives National Science Challenge through the Virtual Health Information Network (VHIN) project which will build on the 'big data' approach to healthcare. June has also contributed to aspects of Neighbourhoods and Health and a small amount for SoFIE-Health.

As a member of the NZDep team for the Social Indicators study, June was involved with the production of NZDep2006. She also occasionally serves as a SAS advisor to people within the department and externally.

June's research interests include statistical programming and graphics, especially using SAS, as well as data management and generalising programs and systems.
