Alex Broom is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Sydney Centre for Healthy Societies, at the School of Social and Political Sciences, The University of Sydney. He is recognised as an international leader in sociology, with a specific interest in health and illness. His work takes a person-centred approach, qualitatively exploring the intersections of individual experience and social, political and economic context. His work uses highly innovative methodologies and theory to provide novel understandings of the social, cultural, political and economic underpinnings of the key health challenges, including cancer, palliative and end-of-life care. He is a global leader in empirically mapping and theorising patient, family and clinician perspectives of illness and care, offering a unique form of collaborative sociology that balances theory, empirical rigour and translatability. His overall aim is to draw on the lived experiences of all stakeholders in healthcare to improve experiences of illness and assist professionals in delivering better care. His recent books include: Dying (2015), Bodies and Suffering (2017,) and Survivorship (2021). In 2020 Alex established and directs the Sydney Centre for Healthy Societies - a research centre dedicated to harnessing social science and humanities expertise to understand and transform how health and social life intersect on our changing planet. Over the course of his career, he has been an investigator on over AU$18 million in competitive research grants, and has published over 250 publications including 14 books.
