Mallory is a PhD candidate and research officer with the Kirby's Biosecurity Program led by Prof Raina MacIntyre. Her PhD, entitled "Barriers and enablers of vaccination - informing whole of life vaccination policy" is focused on gaining a deeper understanding of vaccine hesitancy and assessing current vaccine policies in Australia. In addition, she is currently assisting with a randomised controlled trial of mask use in control of respiratory outcomes during bushfire season, as well as a multi-country survey of mask use during the CO-19 pandemic. Prior to beginning her PhD, she managed a study on the effectiveness of high-dose and adjuvanted influenza vaccines among residents of aged-care facilities. She also supported the IAMI trial, a multi-center, randomized, controlled trial of the effect of influenza vaccines after myocardial infarction on future cardiac events. Prior to joining the Biosecurity Program, she managed a cluster-randomized controlled trial of the effect of low-cost water quality test kits on household water quality in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. She received her BSc in biology from the College of William and Mary and MSPH from Johns Hopkins University.
