Department of Applied Health Research

  • Senior Research Fellow Honorary Consultant in Public Health (non-clinical) Public Health England
  • Applied Health Research
  • Institute of Epidemiology & Health

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).  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).

Research Summary
I am interested in research questions that can have an impact on reducing inequalities in healthcare and access to appropriate healthcare. My research spans different medical specialties (cancer, respiratory disease and sexual health most recently) using both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods. I am currently involved in studies examining pathways to a cancer diagnosis from primary care, the role of GP decision making and predictors of adherence to medication in COPD.
