About Rosalie

Dr Rosalie Woodruff MP is the Tasmanian Greens Member for Franklin, an electorate in southeast lutruwita/Tasmania.

Dr Woodruff is an epidemiologist who, before entering Parliament, researched the impacts of climate change on health. Dr Woodruff has published extensively, worked for the World Health Organisation (WHO), and also contributed research to the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  

Rosalie has also worked in preventive health organisations interstate, championing the health needs for women and the LGBTIQ+ community.

After living in the ACT, Rosalie moved to Tasmania in 2007 with her partner, to raise their two children and be actively involved in the Huon Valley community.

Dr Woodruff served as a Greens councillor on the Huon Valley Council for six years, and set up its Arts and Heritage Committee.

Rosalie was elected to the seat of Franklin in the Tasmania House of Assembly on 19 August 2015, following the resignation of long-serving Greens MP and former Leader, Nick McKim.
