Population Health research

Using their skills in real-world policy development and delivery, and combining these with complex modelling of large-scale data sets to provide the evidence base, our researchers are working to deliver outcomes which will directly impact health both in specific populations and the broader community. Underpinned by the newly established Centre for Population Health Research this is research that is firmly guided by community priorities, from Indigenous health, to medicines policy, to the impact of environment on health.

“My research at UniSA focuses on the evaluation of a large childhood obesity prevention program run throughout the state of South Australia and through my research I am trying to link research findings to public health practice.

I knew population health was what I wanted to pursue when I found out that we can make the environments in which people live healthy by changing aspects of the built environment, policies and access to healthy options for everyone. Coming from a health promotion practice background myself, I could easily relate to those working in the community so I have always tried to make sure my research findings are the most accessible and relevant to them.

Oh, and getting to move to Australia to conduct my research has been a learning experience not only professionally but personally as well.”
