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 research projects designed to improve mental health outcomes and health behaviours.

Data and Measurement
in our research we apply advanced epidemiological, econometric and statistical methods. We use these to identify how issues such as gender equality, housing, employment, violence and discrimination drive health inequalities.
Gender and Sexuality
Our gender driven research projects focus on how gender equity impacts on health and wellbeing, as well as current approaches to the measurement of gender equality.
