The Institute for Health and Ageing is pleased to welcome Dr Kristiann Heesch from the Queensland University of Technology, who will discuss how data from smart phone GPS app Strava has been used to evaluate new transport infrastructure.

Kristi is a Senior Lecturer in Health Promotion in the School of Public Health & Social Work at QUT. Her research focuses on physical activity and health for the prevention of chronic conditions in mid-age to older adults. Her research spans analysis of large datasets to understand associations between physical activity and health outcomes to the development and evaluation of physical activity promotion programs. In the last 5 years, Kristi has focused on bicycle use, both for recreation and for transport, to inform policy and improve cycling promotion.

Much of Kristi’s work ties in with IHA research projects in the areas of Built Environment, Urban Spaces and Active Ageing and Active Living.

Her guest presentation “Evaluation of the Brisbane Veloway 1 with Strava Data”, will be held on Monday 27th June at 11am and is a special addition to IHA’s Live Long Live Well scheduled colloquium series.
