In this episode, Petra speaks to Patricia L. Mabry, an interdisciplinary scientist who applies cutting edge methodologies (modelling and simulation, data science, network science, Artificial Intelligence) to research questions in healthcare, science of science, tobacco control, and health disparities.
In this episode, Petra speaks to Robin Purshouse, who is a Professor of Decision Sciences at the University of Sheffield. His research interests include modelling, analysis and optimisation for supporting decision-making. Robin is a Co-Director of the SIPHER Consortium.
In this episode, Petra speaks to Brian Castellani who is a Professor of Sociology at Durham University. Brian is also a co-investigator of the Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN).

Today we’re delighted to launch our new podcast series, titled Systems Science in Public Health. Over the coming months, our host Petra Meier will be catching up with scientists, thinkers, policymakers and practitioners who work in this space.
Our first episode features Professor Jo-An Occhipinti who is Head of the Systems Modelling, Simulation and Data Science at the Brain and Mind Centre, University of Sydney, Australia. She is also the Managing Director of C-SART which is an international alliance of centres of excellence in systems modelling to inform health and social policy.
The series is a joint venture between the SIPHER Consortium and the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit.
