Geoff Morgan has more than 25 years experience in epidemiological research, as well as environmental health policy and education. His research in environmental epidemiology specialises in the use of state of the art biostatistical and geographical information system techniques applied to routinely collected health data linked to small area level socio-demographic and environmental risk factors. The results of his research have been translated into environmental health and health services policy and his current work includes epidemiological studies into: the health effects of smoke from various sources including bushfires and wood heaters; the health effects of climate including extreme events such as heatwaves; the relationship between the built environment and health. He has a joint appointment with the Sydney School of Public Health and the University Centre for Rural Health.
