Overview

I work with manipulating and measuring the spatial/polarisation and spectral/temporal properties of light, mostly as it travels through multimode fibre. This has applications in optical telecommunications, biomedical imaging, quantum mechanics and astronomical instrumentation but is also just a lot of fun.

There's a good chance that at any point in time I'm using a spatial light modulator in some way to acheive these goals.

All Australians have access to a universal healthcare system. Methods: The study included all non-indigenous adult Australians registered with the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry who commenced dialysis between 2003 and 2013. SES at dialysis start was classified into quartiles of advantaged through to disadvantaged using Australian Bureau of Statistics socio-economic indexes for areas. The primary outcome was survival assessed using a competing risk regression

SES at dialysis start was classified into quartiles of advantaged through to disadvantaged using Australian Bureau of Statistics socio-economic indexes for areas. The primary outcome was survival assessed using a competing risk regression model with renal transplantation as a competing risk. There was a significant interaction between age and SES, and hence, age-stratified survival analyses were performed. Results: A total 20 810 commenced dialysis during the study period. Mortality for the most advantaged quartile was 102.4/1000 person–years (95% confidence interval (CI) 98.0–106.9) compared with 110.7/1000 person–years (95% CI 105.8–115.7) in the disadvantaged quartile. In adjusted analysis, dialysis survival, compared with quartile 1 (advantaged), was inferior in quartil
