Biography

Craig Cumming graduated with a Bachelor of Laws with first class honours and a Bachelor of Criminology and Justice from Edith Cowan University in 2016. He is currently completing a PhD in Pubic Helth at the School of Population and Global Health at the University of Western Australia (UWA). His PhD is focused on investigating the impact of pre-incarceration methamphetamine use on post-release health and health service use outcomes for a cohort of people released from prison, using a combination of self-report and linked administrative data.

Since 2017 Craig has expanded his research interests to include investigating the health of people experiencing homelessness, and the impact that a range of interventions have on their health and health service use. He is currently a member of the Home2Health research group at UWA. He has consulted to the West Australian Department of Justice to advise on the evaluation of prison health interventions, and is currently consulting to the Cancer Council of Western Australia for a project investigating smoking and surgery costs.

Additionally, Craig was invited to give evidence at the Commonwealth Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement’s Inquiry into Crystal Methamphetamine in 2017. Craig has also made written submissions to the West Australian Methamphetamine Action Plan Taskforce in 2018, and the West Australia Inquiry into Alternative Approaches to Reducing Illicit Drug Use and its Effects on the Community in 2019.
