Dr Katrina Proust



BA, LLB, MLitt (Syd); PhD (ANU)


I received by PhD from the ANU in 2005, after studying in the Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies (later FSES). My research was on integrating history and system dynamcis to improve policy making. 

Since 2011 I have contributed to the work of the International Council for Science in the Asia-Pacific Region to take a systems approach to urban health. This led to working with the United Nations University International Institue for Global Health in the Asia region.


Research interests

I am trained as an historical archaeologist, and study the dynamics of human-environment systems with a focus on the interactions between cultural, social, environmental, technological, political and economic forces. I am interested in the interconnected systems that characterise relationships between human health and the environment in urban settings, and that operate in coastal communities.
