Biographical details

Anna Palagyi is a Research Fellow in health systems. She is an optometrist and public health practitioner with a background in global development focusing on models of eye care service delivery in South-East Asia and the Pacific. Anna holds expertise in the epidemiology of older adults, and has previously implemented a program of research applying a health systems and policy lens on aspects of healthy ageing in older Australians with cataract.

Anna has postgraduate degrees from the University of New South Wales (Master of Public Health, 2009) and University of Sydney (PhD, 2017). She is a member of the Tropical Partners consortia with collaborators from University of Sydney, James Cook University, Australian National University, and the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research. Within this work, Anna is developing innovative tools for health systems preparedness assessment across the Pacific Islands and South-East Asia, with the aim of developing stronger health systems to support timely, effective responses to emerging infectious diseases.
