Kirsty is a Senior research Officer at the Kirby Institute, with a focus on the evaluation of public health interventions relating to HIV and STIs. She has a particular interest in reducing the impact of HIV and STIs in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Kirsty's current work at the Kirby Institute focuses on evaluating the long-term uptake, sustainability and impact of STI point-of-care testing in remote and regional health services across Australia (TTANGO2), as well as an evaluation of the preferences and usability of HIV self-test kits among gay and bisexual men in Sydney and Melbourne (PUSH), and a third study which will evaluate a new management program for gonorrhoea infection in nine sexual health services across Australia, where drug resistance test results are provided to guide the choice of antibiotic therapy (GRAND2).
