I currently hold an MRC Career Development Award to undertake research on modifiable life-course pathways to healthy ageing across different generations. Previously, at the UCL Institute of Child Health, I studied lifetime influences on adiposity and physical activity trajectories, health consequences of these trajectories and, long-term effects of early-life adversity. 
Research Themes
Research Summary

I have two main areas of interest: (i) understanding the impact of the changing burden of obesity across generations on physical and cognitive function, and to identify whether dynamic health behaviours (e.g. physical activity), across the life-course, mediate these relationships, and (ii) understanding how specific child maltreatments (abuse and neglect) are related, via certain pathways, to specific outcomes in adulthood.

Teaching Summary

I have extensive teaching experience having taught ~10h/wk during my PhD. I have experience of lecturing, facilitating practical’s, devising and marking exam questions, and supporting MSc and PhD students with STATA skills and statistical analyses. I am currently gaining experience of supervising PhD students. I became a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in October 2018.
