Chloe Clifford Astbury
Chloe Clifford Astbury is a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Global Health at York University in Toronto. Chloe’s research around complex systems has focused on the prevention of communicable and non-communicable disease, with a focus on the food system as a complex system from which health outcomes emerge. Her current projects involve applying complex system methods to understanding how the food system drives the emergence of antimicrobial resistance and emerging infectious diseases, and how policies to reduce the risk of disease emergence intersect with the food system. Chloe also led the development of guidance on using systems approaches in non-communicable disease prevention policy on behalf of the World Health Organization and is interested in complexity training and teaching.
