He has also spent time at UCSF, the University of Wisconsin and Makerere University in Uganda. Bob is a Life Member of the Australasian Epidemiological Association.

Research interests

Bob has been doing research for over 20 years on the health problems of older people in Australia. In the last 10 years he has expanded this research to look at non-communicable diseases and ageing in developing countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.

Teaching and supervision

Bob Cumming is the Director of the Master of International Public Health (MIPH) program, where he teaches several units of study. He also teaches epidemiology to MPH students and population medicine to medical students.
