I have long experience as a practitioner, service director, teacher, research and advisor in health promotion, with a particular emphasis on reducing inequities in health in the population - and on contributing to the achievement of population health equity. I have had extensive experience in the review and revision of national public health policies and strategies, and have contributed to expanding the evidence base informing health promotion theory and practice. I have also had extensive experience in identifying health infrastructure and capacity necessary to design and deliver effective public health interventions. And I in collaboration with AIDA and UNSW colleagues I contributed to the conduct of Health Impact Assessments of the Northern Territory Emergency Response in 2010. I obtained my PhD at Western Sydney University in 2020, using a critical realist approach to investigate reasons for the persistence of inequities in the average life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians.
