Geoffrey Browne

 

Geoff is a subject coordinator, lecturer and researcher across four faculties and has published on a range of issues; Victorian local government's role in health, on health literacy and on sustainability and climate change. Geoff has a special interest in the ecological model of public health, the ‘commercial determinants of health’ and in austerity versus degrowth; or the challenge of enhancing public health equity in the face of energy descent.

Geoff completed his PhD in 2018 on the use of evidence in statutory municipal health and wellbeing planning.

Prior to completing his PhD, Geoff worked at VicHealth as Principal Program Officer, as a consultant for the McCaughey Health and Wellbeing Unit (MSPGH) and for eight years as a senior policy analyst and professional wildfire fighter with the Victorian Environment Department and Environment Commissioner. He was a chief author of the 2008 State of the Environment report and the 2013 State Waste Policy. Geoff also has experience in local government and private practice as a sustainability consultant.
