Since completing her Masters of Brain and Mind Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Sydney, Victoria has gained experience in conducting evidence-based systematic reviews, meta-analyses, scoping reviews and qualitative analyses. She has also led a number of systematic reviews which underpinned recommendations included in NHMRC endorsed clinical practice guidelines for the prevention, early detection and management of colorectal cancer, and surveillance colonoscopy.

Victoria contributes her methodological expertise across a number of projects in The Daffodil Centre on a number of cancer types including colorectal, breast, liver and lung cancer in addition to cancers associated with Lynch syndrome. Her recent work has focused on COVID and cancer as well as genetic testing for Lynch syndrome and two systematic reviews, one aiming to critically review breast cancer risk assessment tools and another focused on liver cancer surveillance to inform upcoming clinical practice guidelines for liver cancer.
