Personal profile

Biography

 Dr Rosemary McFarlane is an Assistant Professor in Public Health at the University of Canberra. She has significant experience and expertise at the interface between health, biodiversity, environmental sustainability and food production. This area is also known as One Health, EcoHealth, Planetary Health and Ecological Public Health. Her unique perspectives derive in part from her initial training as a Veterinarian, and direct hands-on experience in primary production and natural resource management in marginal climatic and agronomic regions. Her PhD training was with the late Professor Tony McMichael and his team of experts in the area of the health impacts of climate and broader ecological change.

Dr McFarlane works extensively with community groups and government to develop landscape-level health solutions. She facilitated the declaration of the 9.8 million ha Ngaanyatjarra Indigenous Protected Area, W.A., and was an instigator of Australian Antarctic Division’s biosecurity measures to protect Antarctic wildlife from human and livestock diseases. She has a long association with Landcare in NSW, ACT and NT , Catchment Management Associations and working with schools and education bodies. 

She has also worked on collaborative projects with W.H.O., IUCN, and other international organisations. Her current research explores health linkages in ecosystem service frameworks, zoonotic disease ecology and the quality of parks and greenspace on health and wellbeing.
