OVERVIEW OF EXPERTISE IN RELATION TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK AND IMPACT

I am Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (CEPAR) at UNSW Sydney and have familiarity with issues that arise with respect to older populations and COVID-19. I am a member of the Group of Eight Universities Roadmap to Recovery Taskforce. In the areas of public policy, I have published extensively on pension and retirement issues, and public economics more generally. My Australian policy experience includes membership of both the Henry Tax Review Panel and the Ministerial Superannuation Advisory Committee, as well as many interactions with a range of Government Departments. I have also extensive experience in interacting with international governments and organisations. I recently joined the US National Academy of Medicine’s Project, “A Global Roadmap to Healthy Longevity” as a Commissioner.

COVID-19 Expert Database

The COVID-19 Expert Database has been created to provide a mechanism for governments, the business sector, the research sector, and other decision-makers to easily access the expertise they need to inform their decision making.


Australia’s ability to navigate this fast-changing environment and to recover from it needs inputs from a range of researchers and other experts. All fields of expertise including: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health, humanities, arts, and social science are needed.
