Dr Gallego leads the Modelling and Simulation in Health research team at the Centre for Health Informatics, (UNSW). This group is developing new empirical models for the analysis, assessment and prediction of healthcare delivery and for the integration of new sources of information into public health and clinical decision making.

Trained as a physicist, she obtained a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) after which she worked as a postdoctoral fellow with the Integrated Sustainability Analysis group at the University of Sydney, before joining the Centre for Health Informatics in 2006.

Dr Gallego has extensive international research experience in data analysis and computational modelling and has made significant and innovative contributions to the design, analysis and development of models derived from complex empirical data for a wide range of applications such as patient safety, biosurveillance, corporate sustainability reporting, ecological footprint analysis and climate variability.
