Research Themes
Research Summary

My work involves cross-country research on life course social epidemiology. My undergraduate degree was in Social and Cultural Anthropology and my subsequent studies were in Social and Life Course Epidemiology. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how social determinants across the life course influence health across different populations and cultural contexts.

I have worked on several multi-country European Union research projects, including MINDMAP, DRIVERS for Health Equity, and INEQ-CITIES. I currently work on an EU Horizon 2020 funded project, Urban Exposome, which investigates the influence of the social and built environment on health in urban populations. My interest in cross-cohort analyses on health inequalities emerged during my PhD, where I investigated cohort differences in the relationship between education and coronary heart disease in Great Britain.

I am a member of the International Epidemiological Association, the Society for Longitudinal and Life Course Studies, and the Society for Epidemiological Research.

Teaching Summary

I co-lead the Ethnicity, Migration, and Health MSc module for students at the Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care and the Institute for Global Health.

I also teach on several modules and act as dissertation supervisor and personal tutor for the Population Health MSc and Social Epidemiology MSc programmes. I currently co-supervise two PhD students.
