She has an academic background in health geography, population studies, epidemiology, health economics and health services research.

Laurie is playing a leading role in the development and application of dynamic and spatial (micro-) simulation models and the use of micro-data for investigating policy issues in health, disability, ageing and caring in Australia and internationally.

Her work includes a focus on the impacts of chronic disease especially dementia and type 2 diabetes and the role that trends in mid-life risk factors will play in the burden of disease over the next 30-40 years; Population ageing, socio-economic and health impacts of demographic change and well-being of older persons; Socio-economic and health disadvantage in Indigenous Australians; and economic
