Professor Pascale Allotey is the former Associate Director (International) of SEACO. She is a former Professor of Public Health at the Jeffrey Cheah School of Medicine and Health Sciences at Monash University Malaysia — a position she has held since 2009. Prior to that, she held a Chair in public health at Brunel University, West London. Her professional training is in nursing, midwifery and public health nursing, with academic training in public health, epidemiology and medical anthropology. The combination of these qualifications provided an exceptional foundation for a public health research career spanning clinical, population and social science research. Pascale held one of the first three elected Honorary Academician positions to the Royal Society for Public Health (formerly the Royal Society of Health). The focus of her research has been on marginalised populations and the effects of marginalising factors on health. She founded SEACO in 2011 with her colleagues Prof. Daniel Reidpath, Prof. Shahjahan Yasin, A/Prof. Dharma Arunachalam and Prof. Maximillian de Courten.
