Our Research Program

Our overarching aim is to develop epidemiological models to relate communicable and non-communicable disease risk factors to disease onset and its subsequent course and impact. Our research informs:

  • Epidemiological understanding of the drivers of disease distribution across populations
  • Disease forecasting methods, for both communicable and non-communicable diseases
  • Health policy development – both by assisting health policy makers to devise optimal health promotion and disease prevention strategies, and by providing lobby and advocacy groups and interested individuals with relevant evidence
  • The use of evidence-based information to understand the real-world effectiveness of health interventions and public health strategies
  • Patient understanding of the relationship between modifiable risk factors and disease outcome
