Stephen Wade

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


Stephen is a researcher in the Lung Cancer Group. His research focusses on statistical and mathematical models of smoking behaviour in the Australian population. Stephen uses statistics to understand what national data sets can and can’t say about historical trends in smoking, and how this knowledge can be used in assessing interventions for lung cancer.
