Overview

Simon Reid is an Associate Professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Queensland. He is a keen advocate of One Health and the application of systems thinking approaches to understand and improve interventions for wicked problems at the human-animal-ecosystem interface such as zoonoses. His research includes projects exploring the drivers of human-bat interactions, human brucellosis and improving global health security. He has an emerging interest in multisectoral governance as it applies to high level issues such as health security and antimicrobial resistance. He delivers postgraduate courses in communicable disease control and One Health at UQ.

Available Projects

  • This is a broad project area that suits a student interested in developing skills in systems thinking and modelling, and its approach to the governance of antimicrobial resistance. This one health project is designed to critically evaluate the structure and implementation of national AMR action plans.

  • Serious games are a relatively new way of creating experiential learning and research tools that are able to simulate real-life contexts. I am working with a colleague Russell Richards (Business School) to develop a serious game called "Spillover" that will be a multiplayer simulation of the systems associated with the spill over of a new zoonotic pathogen. The game offers an opportunity to explore the process that key stakeholders use to make complex decisions under uncertainty. The project involves working with a colleague from the School of Psychology who is an organisation psychologist.
