Personal profile


Professor Alex Collie is Director of the Insurance Work and Health Research Group in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. Alex is an applied public health and social policy researcher, with a specific focus on work disability benefit and compensation systems and their impact on the work, social and health outcomes of injured and ill people.

He leads a program of research that seeks to (1) describe health and work outcomes of people receiving support from Australia’s workers’ compensation, social security, life insurance and road traffic crash compensation systems; (2) identify factors affecting the health and work function of people involved these systems; and (3) modify those factors to improve outcomes for injured and ill people and reduce the burden of work disability in the community.

His research career has been at the border of academia, government and industry. He has moved between these settings but maintained a focus on developing and using evidence to support decision making, develop policy and implement programs to improve social, work and health outcomes of those injured.

Alex currently leads mulitple large projects funded by industry, government and competitive research grants. Alex has advised multiple state and commonwealth government departments andn private sector organisations in matters relating to workplace health, insurance and injury compensation.
