PhD students


Dr Jin Russell

Dr Jin Russell
PhD student

Jin is researching life course pathways to healthy development in New Zealand preschool children. She is using the health and developmental outcomes of children in the Growing Up in New Zealand cohort over their first 54 months (4.5 years) to determine the socio-environmental factors that help them on healthy trajectories prior to school entry. The project will lead to a novel method for conceptualising and representing early child health inequities.

Jin is an advanced trainee in general paediatrics with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. She has a MBChB, PGDip (Paediatrics) from the University of Auckland. She developed an interest in the social determinants of child health and life course epidemiology while working as a Paediatric Registrar in Auckland. This doctoral project is funded by a Health Research Council Clinical Research Training Fellowship.

Dr Mark Hobbs

Dr Mark Hobbs
PhD student

Mark is carrying out research into the factors contributing to serious skin and soft tissue infections (SSSTI) in children under five. New Zealand children experience a high rate of hospitalisation for these infections, with Māori and Pacific children disproportionately affected.

Using health information collected from the Growing Up in New Zealand cohort, Mark will determine how social, economic, ethnic, environmental, genetic and microbiological factors influence the occurence of the disease.

Mark completed his undergraduate medical training (MBChB) at the University of Auckland and subsequently underwent specialist training, predominantly in Auckland and Middlemore hospitals. He gained fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, qualifying as a specialist in general medicine and infectious diseases in 2014. Mark's PhD research is funded by the Auckland Medical Research Foundation through a Douglas Goodfellow Medical Research Fellowship.
