Research Themes
Research Summary

My research interests include investigating social determinants of health, specifically those related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, their risk factors, maternal and child health. 

I'm a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Child Health, UCL. My main research project deals with exploring inequalities in treatment and outcomes for children and young people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes with a special focus on social and ethnic determinants of health.

Current projects:

1. Assessing the incidence and prevalence of type 1 diabetes in England & Wales. Investigating social and ethnic differences in the incidence and prevalence of type 1 diabetes.

2. Investigating social and ethnic differences in type 1 diabetes control (glycaemic control), treatment and outcomes (diabetic ketoacidosis and hypoglycaemia) and potential risk factors. 

Project period - April 2014 to July 2017.
