Angela is Senior Research Fellow at the Health Innovation and Transformation Centre at Federation University. She has expertise in prevention and population health, addictive consumption and health equity. Her work has focused on how to minimise preventable illness and reduce inequities and inequality. Her research has found that under current arrangements, gambling accelerates inequity and inequality.
Angela’s Churchill Fellowship allowed her to develop and strengthen relationships with collaborators in a number of countries. It also led to her appointment on the WHO technical group on Gambling, which met for the first time in Istanbul in December 2019. She is currently establishing a program of work on excess mortality related to gambling, including gambling-related suicide. She is a Commissioner on the Lancet Public Health Commission on Gambling and Associate Editor of the newly established Critical Gambling Studies Journal. Angela holds an Adjunct role at Monash University School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine and regularly peer reviews scientific articles for a range of journals.
