Tony Gatrell is Professor of the Geography of Health. His research interests cover geographical epidemiology, the geography of health service provision, and geographical aspects of health inequalities.
More recently he has worked on geographical aspects of the provision of end of life care and is presently interested in associations between mobility and health.
During his research career he has made extensive use of spatial data analysis and Geographical Information Systems, co-authoring 'Interactive Spatial Data Analysis' with Trevor Bailey in 1995 (published by Addison Wesley Longman) and co-editing (with Peter Durr) 'GIS and Spatial Analysis in Veterinary Science' (CABI Press, 2004) . He is the author of 'Geographies of Health' (Wiley-Blackwell, 2002), with a second edition (co-author Susan Elliott) published in 2009. His new book 'Mobilities and Health' (Ashgate) should be published in late 2011.
Tony has taught at postgraduate (Masters) level, and has supervised many research students, whose research has ranged from cancer survival, through to cancer epidemiology, the geography of health inequalities and the impact of air pollution on human health.
