Pippa is a Research Fellow at the National heart and Lung Institute, funded via an MRC-PHE centre for Environment and Health fellowship. She is particularly interested in potential associations of respiratory disease with biological air pollution exposure in studies of people living near anthropogenic sources of biological air pollution.

Prior to her fellowship, Pippa worked in the Small Area Health Statistics Unit where she gained extensive experience in environmental epidemiology, exposure assessment, and handling large routine health data. She received her PhD in air pollution monitoring and modelling from Cranfield University in 2014, focussing on bioaerosol emissions from composting facilities.
