In 2011 she completed a Medical Entomology Master Class at James Cook University.In September 2013 Gina participated in the Australian Entomological Society’s 44th AGM and Scientific Conference – Invertebrates in Extreme Environments which included a presentation of a poster on urban wetlands pre and post-construction.
In more recent times Gina has been involved with Australian research projects in medical entomology. These include studies of dengue in future climates. In her current role as a Research Assistant, she has been conducting the modelling of Aedes aegypti populations in North Queensland using the CIMSiM modelling package by putting together climate data and entomological data. This work also included the modelling of dengue transmission using the DENSiM modelling package. Currently Gina is assisting in a project modelling dengue transmission in China.
Gina has experience in partnerships and continuous communications with local and state governments. All the field work she has been and is currently involved in includes the reporting and communication with local councils as well as responding to community complaints and concerns.
Gina Mincham is qualified with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Health Science from the University of South Australia and is currently enrolled in the Masters of Population Health Practice looking at evaluating dengue management strategies using a simulation model for Guangzhou, Southern China.
