He is committed to answering questions about which public health interventions will achieve the greatest improvements in health and social outcomes, reduce inequalities in health, and do so cost-effectively. Professor Blakely’s research covers a range of topic areas, intersected with methodological advancements.

Professor Blakely is Director of the Population Interventions (PI) Unit within the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. PI aims to: “provide robust evidence on the health and cost impacts of population interventions, through causal inference and simulation approaches from epidemiology, economics and data science.” PI includes projects using contemporary epidemiological and econometric methods applied to existing data), through to projects using simulation models to estimate the health gains and cost impacts of interventions such as tobacco tax, dietary counselling, etc. He is collaborating with the Institute of Health Metrics and the University of Otago to build next-generation macro-simulation models, that will intersect easily with Global Burden of Disease data to allow multi-country evaluations.

Cutting across all Professor Blakely’s research is a strong focus and interest in epidemiological and quantitative research methodologies.
