Behavioural Epidemiology

This program of research examines personal, social, structural, policy and environmental factors that influence eating, physical activity and sedentary behaviours, across the lifespan and among disadvantaged groups. Interventions to improve these behaviours are also developed and tested to determine effectiveness and feasibility.

Our team includes researchers with cross-disciplinary expertise spanning epidemiology, nutrition, human movement, health promotion, psychology, and geography.
