Ali is a Research Fellow with The Hopkins Centre, Menzies Health Institute Queensland. He has over 7 years’ experience working within community based research projects that have partnered with health and social service organisations. His Program of Research utilises innovative methods and technologies to investigate features contributing to enabling environments for people with injury and/or disability. In particular, his Program considers how public and private places in the community impact the health of people with injury. The suite of projects that he is currently leading investigate how health and rehabilitation outcomes are impacted by: (i) health facility environmental features and (ii) increased engagement with greenspaces, private establishments, and public facilities within the community.
