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.
Luke Knibbs is Associate Professor, Epidemiology and Public Health Data Science, at the School of Public Health and Director, Public Health Research Analytics and Methods for Evidence (PHRAME), at Sydney Local Health District (SLHD). Luke has a multidisciplinary background in atmospheric science, epidemiology and geographic information systems. This has informed his long-standing interest, originally borne out of necessity, in harnessing large and/or high-dimensional data sets to answer questions on anthropogenic sources of environmental change and the exposures that may mediate effects on human health, including air pollution among others. The majority of recent work is focused on, and done in collaboration with colleagues in, low- and middle-income countries.
Kazuaki Negishi is Professor of Medicine, and Head of Discipline of Medicine at Sydney Medical School Nepean, in Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Sydney. He is a current National Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellow and Adjunct Professor at the University of Tasmania. Clinically, he is a Board-Certified Cardiologist in Japan and Australia, currently practicing at Nepean Hospital, NSW. He had his Cardiology training and PhD in Japan. He spent three years in Cleveland Clinic, OH, USA to peruse his academic interest before he came to Australia. He worked at Menzies Institute for Medical Research, University of Tasmania as Senior Research Fellow and led the Echo lab at Royal Hobart Hospital as a practicing cardiologist.
Donna Green is an environmental scientist with international recognition for world-leading multidisciplinary applied research on the interconnected human impacts of climate change, energy policy and air pollution. Her team investigates how best to balance ways to improve indoor air quality from outdoor air pollution (such as from traffic, bushfires or industry) against the increasingly recognised risks from indoor air (eg. airborne diseases such as COVID-19). She leads research and practical collaborations with engineers, legal and policy practitioners, and public health experts to design effective, evidence-based solutions.
Tim Chaston is a researcher with a strong publication track record and extensive publication industry experience in biomedical sciences. He has expertise in a wide range of molecular biological, biochemical and computational techniques and in statistical methods for clinical, epidemiological and meta-analytical studies.
