Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Public health
  • Social psychology

Kylie Ball mainly focuses on Gerontology, Environmental health, Socioeconomic status, Public health and Overweight. Her Gerontology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both El Niño, Physical exercise and Behavioural sciences. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Food environment, Food intake, Eating behaviour and Risk factor.

Within one scientific family, she focuses on topics pertaining to Disadvantaged under Socioeconomic status, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Food store, Socioeconomic inequalities and Socioeconomic disadvantage. Her Public health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cohort study, Healthy eating and Population study. Her work deals with themes such as Weight gain and Physical therapy, which intersect with Overweight.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017 : a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1257 citations)
  • Personal, family, social, and environmental correlates of active commuting to school. (601 citations)
  • Physical activity and likelihood of depression in adults: a review. (467 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Gerontology, Environmental health, Obesity, Socioeconomic status and Public health. Kylie Ball interconnects Body mass index, Disadvantaged, Demography and Health promotion in the investigation of issues within Gerontology. Her study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Odds ratio and Odds.

Her work focuses on many connections between Environmental health and other disciplines, such as Psychological intervention, that overlap with her field of interest in Randomized controlled trial and Intervention. Kylie Ball specializes in Obesity, namely Overweight. She usually deals with Overweight and limits it to topics linked to Weight gain and Weight change.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (29.53%)
  • Environmental health (30.65%)
  • Obesity (17.45%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Environmental health (30.65%)
  • Psychological intervention (12.75%)
  • Gerontology (29.53%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental health, Psychological intervention, Gerontology, Public health and Randomized controlled trial. Her studies in Environmental health integrate themes in fields like Relative risk, Socioeconomic status and Risk factor. Her Psychological intervention study deals with Health promotion intersecting with Social psychology.

Her Gerontology research incorporates themes from Body mass index, Demography, Disadvantaged and Behavior change. The Public health study combines topics in areas such as Purchasing, Obesity and Malnutrition. Her Randomized controlled trial study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Intervention and Physical therapy.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017 : a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1257 citations)
  • Global burden of 87 risk factors in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (163 citations)
  • Global burden of 87 risk factors in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (163 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Social psychology
  • Public health

Environmental health, Psychological intervention, Gerontology, Public health and Risk factor are her primary areas of study. Her research integrates issues of Intervention, Socioeconomic status and Obesity in her study of Environmental health. Her Psychological intervention study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disadvantaged, Randomized controlled trial, Telehealth, Health promotion and Health education.

Her Gerontology research integrates issues from Body mass index, Telemedicine and Demography. In her works, she performs multidisciplinary study on Public health and Neighbourhood. Kylie Ball has included themes like Disease burden, Relative risk, Population ageing and Cohort study in her Risk factor study.
