Fatima Ghani

Fatima Ghani is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the UNU International Institute for Global Health. Her doctoral research in social epidemiology used data from a large multilevel longitudinal study called HABITAT to identify the social and physical changes required to mitigate gender and age inequalities in recreational and utilitarian walking within neighbourhoods. Her research was part of the broader efforts conducted by the Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy, Liveable Communities to inform the development of ecological interventions that support active living and ageing communities, funded by Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council.
