Dr Snehal Pinto Pereira profile picture
  • Lecturer in Population Health and Applied Statistics
  • Department of Targeted Intervention
  • Div of Surgery & Interventional Sci
  • Faculty of Medical Sciences

I am a Lecturer in Population Health and Applied Statistics in the UCL Division of Surgery and Interventional Science. I am a statistical epidemiologist by training and currently hold an MRC Career Development Award. Prior to this, at the UCL Institute of Child Health, I examined lifetime influences on adiposity and physical activity trajectories, health consequences of these trajectories and, long-term effects of early-life adversity. I have a BSc (Hons) in Actuarial Sciences, MSc in Medical Statistics and PhD in Epidemiology.

Research Themes
Research Summary

I currently focus on two main areas: (i) understanding the impact of the changing burden of obesity across generations on physical functioning, and identifying whether dynamic health behaviours, such as 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 outcomes in adulthood. My research is underpinned by a strong methodological foundation that aims to make the best use of existing data resources and addresses public health needs with impact on national policy and practice. 

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.
