Anne Kavanagh

 

Professor Anne Kavanagh is a social epidemiologist who is well-known for her work on health inequalities. She is the inaugural Chair of Disability and Health and Head of the Disability and Health Unit in the Centre for Health Equity, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health.



She is also the Academic Director of the Melbourne Disability Institute, and the Director and Lead Investigator on the Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health (credh.org.au).

Her major research focus is on the health of people with disability. She focuses on how social determinants such as employment, housing, poverty and education influence the health of disability. Her work identifies potential policy solutions to reduce disability-related socio-economic and health disadvantage.

All of her research applies high-level quantitative methods to investigate complex social and health problems.
