Prof Tony Blakely is a public health medicine specialist and epidemiologist. He leads the Population Interventions Unit at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne. His research quantifies the health and cost impacts of population interventions, using a blending of epidemiology, economics and data science (e.g. computer simulation, data visualization). In HEAL Prof Blakely provides access to the Scalable Health Intervention Evaluation (SHINE) infrastructure to quantify health impacts (e.g. Health Adjusted Life Years) and cost (health system, and productivity gains using income) arising from interventions such as mitigation of heat stress. SHINE is a collaboration with the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME, University of Washington; home of the Global Burden of Disease). In 2023 Prof Blakey was appointed as the Chair of the New Zealand Royal Commission Lesson Learned.
