Senior Research Fellow, National Centre for Healthy Ageing, Monash University, Monash University

Dr Alison Carver is a Senior Research Fellow in the National Centre for Healthy Ageing (NCHA), Monash University. She is working on a number of complementary projects being undertaken by the Health Ageing Data Platform in the application of linked data to health service research. With a background in public health and behavioural epidemiology, she will apply epidemiological techniques to answer a range of research questions relevant to ageing.

Her previous research at Australian Catholic University and Deakin University examined how the built environment is related to health across the lifespan. Relevant to NCHA, she explored how views and presence of greenery are associated with mental wellbeing among aged-care residents.

Current projects include:
• creating coding algorithms to predict dementia cases among the older population using routinely collected healthcare data
• exploring associations of greenery and air pollution with diagnosed health conditions
• examining use of healthcare services by aged care residents in SE Metro region.
