Isaac Hockey is a winter intern at the O’Neill Institute.
Prior to joining O’Neill, Hockey worked in a not-for-profit organization that championed the needs for people living with rare genetic conditions. He is eager to learn more about health law in relation to legal theory, executive power, and human rights.
Outside of the public health domain, Hockey has previously represented Australia in track and field. Specializing at 1500m, he finished 20th at the 2016 World Junior Championships, and 6th at the 2017 World University Games.
Hockey holds a Bachelor of Biomedicine and Master of Public Health from the University of Melbourne. His interest in infectious disease epidemiology culminated in research that made recommendations to better integrate culturally and linguistically diverse people into the Australian hepatitis B care cascade.
