We encourage colleagues and postgraduate students to help further develop our research areas. Contact Fiona Maley.
It is clear that many environmental health problems cannot be solved using 'traditional' disease models alone.
Broader approaches are required to analyse interactions between humans and ecosystems.
We need to employ a multi-disciplinary understanding of the environmental and ecological factors that determine the frequency, temporal variation and geographic distribution of disease, as well as the exposure to elements and contaminants of both natural and anthropogenic origin.

We are involved in three primary areas of research:
