Dr Lucy Gunn has 20 years of experience in research and teaching in the fields of econometrics and urban research. Her key interest is in understanding which urban environments are supportive of health and wellbeing outcomes. Her research provides an evidence base to policy makers and planners on what constitutes good urban design and provides feedback on the implementation of current and previous urban plans and their impact on the health of residents. Recent projects have spanned topics including health-economic evaluation of brownfield and greenfield sites, transit-oriented development in metropolitan Melbourne, and creating liveable cities using indicators of liveability.
