I work on the cross-disciplinary Street Mobility & Network Accessibility project (2014-16), led by Dr Jenny Mindell (Epidemiology & Public Health): http://www.ucl.ac.uk/street-mobility
My job is to develop a questionnaire to measure community severance and its effects. This will combine previously validated questions as well as input from communities in case study areas. The questionnaire will be piloted and later validated against street and area data.
Prior to this I completed a PhD (2010-13) in under-reporting of alcohol consumption in England, supervised by Dr Nicola Shelton (Epidemiology & Public Health) and Dr James Kneale (Geography). I used existing Health Survey for England and General Lifestyle Survey data, collected quantitative data on drink pouring, and also conducted qualitative interviews.
I originally joined UCL in December 2009 when I worked with Prof Allan Hackshaw (Cancer Institute) on a systematic review of maternal smoking and birth defects.
I graduated with a distinction in MSc Health Sciences from Newcastle University in 2009. My dissertation on socio-economic variations in outdoor food advertising was supervised by Prof Martin White and Dr Jean Adams. The previous year I left Durham University with a BSc (Hons) in Natural Sciences.
I have experience of analysing existing data as well as collecting data, using both quantitative and qualitative methods. I have knowledge of social survey methodology, especially in relation to alcohol consumption. I have also conducted systematic reviews.
I am involved with undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and postgraduate research project supervision.
