Personal profile

Public Profile

Dr Terry Boyle is an epidemiologist in the Australian Centre for Precision Health at UniSA. He has a broad interest in lifestyle factors and chronic disease, with a focus on the role that physical activity and sedentary behaviour play in cancer risk, cancer survival and cancer survivorship. While he conducts research on a range of cancers, his recent studies have been on haematological cancers such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Terry received his PhD from The University of Western Australia in 2012, then received prestigious Fellowships from the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) which gave him the opportunity to spend two years at the BC Cancer Agency and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He joined UniSA in October 2017, before which he was at the Curtin University School of Public Health in Western Australia.

Terry has experience in a range of epidemiological and biostatistical methods, including multiple imputation, meta-analysis, directed acyclic graphs, causal inference methods, assessment of lifestyle-related and occupational exposures and increasing participation in epidemiological studies, and is currently leading several projects involving pooling data from multiple national and international studies. Terry also lectures and consults in biostatistics.
