Research Summary

My background is in international policy/economics and epidemiology. For my PhD, I studied the epidemiology of eating disorders and eating disorders behaviours (with particular focus on purging behaviours) in two UK samples of adults and adolescents. One of my aims was to substantiate emerging evidence on the existence of a 'purging disorder' which is distinct from bulimia nervosa. 

I have a research interest in the social determinants of health and I joined DAHR in February 2014 to collaborate as health economist on a number of NIHR CLAHRC North Thames projects. Currently, I am working on the economic evaluation of a project aimed at improving chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) care and I am involved in a study (ASCEND) investigating the social gradient in uptake of bowel cancer screening.
