Biography

Dr Nasser Bagheri is a Fellow at the Australian National University (ANU), recipient of an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellowship and leads a spatial epidemiology team in the Department of Health Services Research and Policy, ANU. His research has focused on chronic disease risk assessment, particularly, cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, mental health and dementia with a particular interest in spatial variation and quantifying the impact of modifiable risk factors including lifestyle and built environment on chronic disease.
