2017 - Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Science

Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Public health

Her primary scientific interests are in Psychiatry, Global health, Years of potential life lost, Epidemiology and Environmental health. Psychiatry is closely attributed to Public health in her study. Her work carried out in the field of Global health brings together such families of science as Fertility, Incidence, Cause of death, Life expectancy and Depression.

Louisa Degenhardt focuses mostly in the field of Years of potential life lost, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gerontology and, in certain cases, Disability-adjusted life year, Cohort and Population health. Her Epidemiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bipolar disorder, Hepatitis C and Disease. Her research investigates the connection with Environmental health and areas like Risk factor which intersect with concerns in Risk assessment and Relative risk.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (8830 citations)
  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)

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

Louisa Degenhardt mainly investigates Psychiatry, Substance abuse, Environmental health, Cannabis and Mental health. Her Psychiatry research includes elements of Public health, Epidemiology, Cohort and Clinical psychology. Her Substance abuse research incorporates themes from Drug, Heroin, Young adult, Ecstasy and Injury prevention.

Louisa Degenhardt combines subjects such as Global health and Risk factor with her study of Environmental health. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Life expectancy and Disease burden. Her Mortality rate study combines topics in areas such as Years of potential life lost and Cause of death.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Psychiatry (57.48%)
  • Substance abuse (26.40%)
  • Environmental health (16.32%)

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

  • Psychiatry (57.48%)
  • Environmental health (16.32%)
  • Cohort study (13.10%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Environmental health, Cohort study, Internal medicine and Substance abuse. Louisa Degenhardt frequently studies issues relating to Alcohol dependence and Psychiatry. Her Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Epidemiology, Public health, Disease burden, Drug and Risk factor.

Her Epidemiology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Mortality rate. As part of one scientific family, Louisa Degenhardt deals mainly with the area of Public health, narrowing it down to issues related to the Incidence, and often Life expectancy. She interconnects Prospective cohort study, Alcohol abuse and Cohort in the investigation of issues within Substance abuse.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex-specific mortality for 282 causes of death in 195 countries and territories, 1980-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1735 citations)
  • 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)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Law

Louisa Degenhardt spends much of her time researching Psychiatry, Life expectancy, Environmental health, Global health and Substance abuse. As a part of the same scientific study, Louisa Degenhardt usually deals with the Life expectancy, concentrating on Mortality rate and frequently concerns with Epidemiology and Injury prevention. Her research on Environmental health also deals with topics like

  • Risk factor which is related to area like Disease burden and Relative risk,
  • Public health and related Drug.

Her Global health research incorporates elements of Fertility and Birth rate. Her research in Substance abuse intersects with topics in Methamphetamine and Prospective cohort study. The concepts of her Years of potential life lost study are interwoven with issues in Cause of death and Population health.
