Natasha Reid is an epidemiologist who received her PhD from the University of Queensland in 2018. Natasha specialises in research aiming to understand and influence quality of life in older adults across settings from community to long-term care, cancer and other acute-care patients. Having worked across both secondary data analysis and primary data collection and intervention, Natasha’s experience includes complex data analysis as well as both individual and systems level behaviour change strategies.

Natasha has also worked across numerous health, ageing and aged care industry collaborations on projects on sport and recreational land use planning and residential aged care quality indicators. Natasha is a regular contributor in her field and is a regular manuscript reviewer, sits on an early-to-mid career researcher committee and conference organising committees, has supported a number of students through their projects and disseminates her research on healthy ageing to community organisations.

Natasha’s presentation at this Geriatric Seminar Series will focus on her PhD and related work, which explores the association of sedentary behaviour, or too much sitting, with physical function in older adults. This presentation will address the broader health impacts of excessive sitting time in older people, before detailing the findings and overall conclusions of Natasha’s research during her PhD. This research covers large epidemiological work and primary data analysis, and explores associations across settings, measurement methods and study designs.
