Editor: Dr Priscilla Robinson

Priscilla Robinson is the academic co-ordinator for Master of Public Health program at La Trobe University in Victoria. She has extensive fieldwork and teaching experience having worked in primary health and public health departments in both Victoria and in England; she has been both a student and teacher at several Victorian universities, maintaining working relationships with various ongoing adjunct appointments. She has represented Australian Network of Academic Public Health Institutions at meetings in Europe and Canada, contributing to the debates on public health competencies, regulation or public health teaching and registration of public health practitioners. She supervises and teaches student research and is passionate (obsessive?) about methodological rigour, regardless of method. Her research interests are broadly described as epidemiological but wide ranging, covering communicable diseases, international health, and the relationship between the arts and public health (not as divergent as this might seem). As well as a range of academic papers she has contributed book chapters to works on public health law and public health practice, and to major reports on risk communication. She has considerable experience in, and is an enthusiastic reviewer of, papers and books for this and several other journals.

His research and teaching interests include environmental health, tobacco control and social epidemiology. He has been a member of the writing group of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for the past three assessment reports. Spare time is for mountains, books and riding bicycles.
