    Biography

    Personal Statement

    I am a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Applied Public Health. My research focuses on evaluating the health inequalities impact of social, welfare, economic and health policies. I have a particular interest in research that enables local government to promote health equity by addressing the social determinants of health. Between 2010 to 2015 I was a NIHR Research Fellow and NHS Consultant in Public Health. Prior to this I studied anthropology as an undergraduate at University College London, trained and worked as a nurse and undertook post graduate studies in public health and epidemiology at LSHTM and the University of Liverpool. After a number of years working on humanitarian and infectious disease control programmes in post-conflict countries, I returned to work in applied public health in the UK for the NHS and Health Protection Agency before taking up an academic post.
