Our research aims to reduce the large inequalities currently experienced by people with disabilities in Australia. We are social epidemiologists with expertise in public health and policy implementation. We share an interest in methodological innovations to improve the quality of our research as well as a strong commitment to reducing disability-related health inequalities.
We lead a range of research projects designed to improve mental health outcomes and health behaviours.
