I completed a PhD in Epidemiology from UCL in 2012 investigating the association between parental separation and adult psychological distress in three British birth cohorts (1946, 1958 and 1970), with a particular focus on the material and relational pathways involved.
Prior to this I did a Masters degree in Health and Society: Social Epidemiology also in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at UCL. My summer project investigated the association between childhood socioeconomic position and adult smoking, looking at the role played by childhood psychosocial factors using data from the 1958 British birth cohort. My undergraduate degree is in Human Biology and Health Studies.
I am a Senior Research Associate in Life Course Social Epidemiology. I'm currently working on an ESRC Secondary Data Analysis Initiative project investigating the life course causes and consequences of caring using data from the 1958 British birth cohort and the UK Household Longitudinal Study.
I previous worked on a European Research Council project with Dr Anne McMunn. This project investigated gender and cohort differences in work-family roles and their associations with health in mid-life using data from the British birth cohorts (1946, 1958 and 1970).
Lecturer in basic statistics, epidemiology, and health inequalities across the life course.
