Biography

My academic training is multidisciplinary, and I have degrees in nutrition, public health and medical statistics, and a PhD in epidemiology. I am currently appointed as a Reader in Epidemiology and Public Health at UCL. I am also an Adjunct Professor in Epidemiology, University of Tampere, Finland.

Research Summary
Much of my work is interdisciplinary, and I use tools of genetic epidemiology to evaluate how by making changes in nutritional status or dietary intake we can improve health. I run several large projects, which aim to evaluate short- and long-term health effects of vitamin D. I also work actively in the field of inter-generational and life-course epidemiology, where increasingly the focus is in establishing how common genetic variations can affect dietary or other lifestyle influences on health.
