I completed an MRC Fellowship/ PhD at UCL, examining socioeconomic inequalities in access to chlamydia testing in young people in December 2011.
My interest in applied health research originated outside of the university setting. At the Healthcare Commission (now the Care Quality Commission), I worked on methods for monitoring healthcare quality in the NHS.
I am qualified as a specialist in public health (UKPHR: FR0645) and hold an honorary consultant contract with Barking & Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Groups. As a specialist trainee in public health, I worked at the Department of Health as research lead for a programme to support young parents, North East & North Central London Health Protection Agency and Redbridge Primary Care Trust.
My first degree was in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University. I hold Masters degrees in Science Communication (Imperial College, London) and Public Health (London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine).
At UCL I am involved in screening and epidemiology small group teaching and lectures for MBBS and MSc students. We are currently working on an Electronic Learning Development Grant to develop an online study resource.
In addition, I am a co-author of Mastering Public Health, a guide to postgraduate public health and examinations and a course leader for the People’s University international online masters level module on Evidence Based Practice.
