Research Fellow, School of Regulation and Global Governance, Australian National University

Ashley completed her doctoral thesis in Population Health at the University of Ottawa on international trade and investment agreements and health, exploring the role of transnational corporations and international investment law. Her work has investigated trade and investment agreements as macroeconomic policy drivers of noncommunicable diseases through pathways including diet, tobacco and alcohol use, access to medicines, and the broader social determinants of health. Ashley is currently working with the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in the Social Determinants of Health Equity testing the feasibility of different methodologies to evaluate the impact of multi-sectoral public policies on the social determinants of health and health equity outcomes. Her research interests include: global governance for health; public policy; social determinants of health and health equity; food systems; international trade and investment policy; international dispute resolution; policy evaluation measurement and methods; and critical political theory
