Ellen Kearney

Honours Student

Background

Undertaking her honours year at Monash University and the Burnet Institute, Ellen’s research seeks to explore the prevalence and impact of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), particularly Ureaplasma spp., in pregnant women in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

Having completed a Bachelor of Arts alongside her Science degree, Ellen’s interest in disease is heightened by her understanding of the inequities pertaining to health and social circumstance. This project combines her interests in microbiology, epidemiology and international development.
