About Carl Higgs

Carl Higgs is a doctoral researcher in the Healthy Liveable Cities Lab of the Centre for Urban Research at RMIT University, with a background in spatial epidemiology and computational statistics. Methods and tools Carl has developed have supported calculation and dissemination of policy-relevant spatial urban indicators for cities in Australia and internationally using open data and an open science ethos.  The data generated from these projects have been linked with geocoded survey participant locations to better understand how urban environments influence health and wellbeing, and empower policy makers and planners with the evidence needed to enact change.
