Pete originally trained as a paediatrician and worked with Aboriginal communities across Victoria and NT. Recognising that the needs of adolescents were largely overlooked, he undertook a PhD to better understand health needs so as to inform effective actions. Pete also leads a research group at the Burnet Institute where his work focusses on improving adolescent health in the Asia Pacific region.
