  • Biography/ Background


    Dr Danielle Taylor is a health geographer at the University of Adelaide, with experience in the application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for health research. Her research interests include the application of spatial technology to: health inequalities; spatial epidemiology; accessibility analysis; improving strategic service planning and resource allocation. She is the recipient of the 2017 Hospital Research Foundation Mid-Career Fellowship, based at the Basil Hetzel Institute. Her fellowship research aims to understand the influence of environmental factors, in particular local measures of accessibility, as enablers or barriers to healthy ageing and indicators of frailty risk.
