Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Public health
  • Social psychology

Billie Giles-Corti spends much of his time researching Built environment, Neighbourhood, Level design, Demography and Recreation. His work on Walkability as part of general Built environment research is frequently linked to Destinations, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Level design research incorporates Injury prevention, Environmental health, Gerontology and Demographic economics.

His work carried out in the field of Environmental health brings together such families of science as Natural resource economics, Transport engineering and Public health. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Longitudinal study, Logistic regression and Pedometer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Active living, Socioeconomics, Travel behavior and Public open space in addition to Recreation.

His most cited work include:

  • The relative influence of individual, social and physical environment determinants of physical activity. (1018 citations)
  • Increasing walking: How important is distance to, attractiveness, and size of public open space? (986 citations)
  • Socioeconomic Status Differences in Recreational Physical Activity Levels and Real and Perceived Access to a Supportive Physical Environment (691 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Built environment, Neighbourhood, Environmental health, Demography and Recreation. His Walkability study, which is part of a larger body of work in Built environment, is frequently linked to Level design, bridging the gap between disciplines. Billie Giles-Corti interconnects Health promotion, Public health and Health policy in the investigation of issues within Environmental health.

His Demography research includes elements of Logistic regression, Odds and Gerontology. Recreation and Public open space are frequently intertwined in his study. His Urban planning research incorporates elements of Public transport, Population health and Environmental planning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Built environment (31.81%)
  • Neighbourhood (22.00%)
  • Environmental health (21.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Built environment (31.81%)
  • Demography (19.39%)
  • Walkability (14.38%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Built environment, Demography, Walkability, Urban planning and Public health. His Built environment study incorporates themes from Land use, Environmental health, Disadvantage, Mental health and Population health. In his works, Billie Giles-Corti undertakes multidisciplinary study on Environmental health and Level design.

Billie Giles-Corti performs multidisciplinary studies into Demography and Neighbourhood in his work. The Walkability study combines topics in areas such as Transport engineering and Public transport. His research integrates issues of Economic growth, Public policy, Public open space and Environmental planning in his study of Urban planning.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Built environment and cardio-metabolic health: systematic review and meta-analysis of longitudinal studies. (37 citations)
  • The REVAMP natural experiment study: the impact of a play-scape installation on park visitation and park-based physical activity (24 citations)
  • A Longitudinal Study Examining Changes in Street Connectivity, Land Use, and Density of Dwellings and Walking for Transport in Brisbane, Australia. (19 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Social psychology
  • Public health

His primary areas of study are Built environment, Walkability, Environmental health, Demography and Public transport. The various areas that Billie Giles-Corti examines in his Built environment study include Urbanization, Socioeconomics, Land use and Population health. Billie Giles-Corti usually deals with Walkability and limits it to topics linked to Transport engineering and Process.

His study ties his expertise on Urban planning together with the subject of Environmental health. In his research on the topic of Urban planning, Recreation and Health geography is strongly related with Public open space. Billie Giles-Corti has included themes like Body mass index, Housing tenure and Psychological intervention in his Demography study.
