Professor Gavin Turrell

Gavin is a Professor in the Healthy Liveable Cities Group. His primary research interests are in social epidemiology, with a focus on the social determinants of health and health inequities.

Gavin’s research is mainly population-based and examines how social, economic and environmental factors (measured at the individual, group, and area levels) influence health and health-related behaviours.

Gavin is a Chief Investigator on several National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) projects that are examining ways to create healthy, liveable and equitable communities in Australia.

Between 2006 and 2015 Gavin was supported by NHMRC Senior Research Fellowships, and prior to this he was appointed on an NHMRC/National Heart Foundation Career Development Award (2002-2005) and an NHMRC Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship (1999-2001).
