Who Is Speaking?

Dennis Wollersheim loves data. Coming over to the Victorian Department of Health as a Principal Analyst, 9 months into the pandemic, was the best thing ever. Prior to that, he taught La Trobe University health information management students to analyse million record datasets. Now, instead of expressing his joy through students, he gets to work with those datasets and more, on a daily basis.
