I am a doctoral researcher at the Child Health Unit and Global Digital Health Unit at the Department of Primary Care and Public Health. My research is focused on childhood obesity, physical activity in children, evaluations of complex health interventions (in schools), health inequalities, and quantitative statistical methods. I work with routinely collected national data to encourage more data driven policy. I have a personal interest in advocating for representation and diversity in academia, and mental health especially among graduate students.
I have a Masters of Public Health from the University of Edinburgh with a focus on epidemiology and statistical methods where I worked on breast cancer survival in patients with multi-morbidies under Professor Sarah Wild. In 2018 I was awarded the National Institute of Health Research, School for Public Health Research (NIHR SPHR) Studentship. You can read more about my doctoral work via NIHR SPHR, where I work under the supervision of Professor Sonia Saxena and Dr Ceire Costelloe (Imperial College London), Dr Esther van Sluijs (University of Cambridge) and Professor Russell Viner (University College London).
