Dr Rosemary Green

Assistant Professor in Nutrition and Sustainability


I have a PhD in epidemiology from St George's, University of London, and have worked in the areas of non-communicable disease epidemiology, nutrition, environment and the developmental origins of disease. I previously worked at the National Centre for Social Research as a Senior Research Analyst in the Longitudinal Studies group, and joined the School in May 2011 as a Research Fellow.




I am a tutor on the distance learning MSc in Epidemiology, in Practical Epidemiology, Writing and Reviewing Epidemiological Papers, and Epidemiology of Non-Communicable Diseases. I am also co-organiser of the Practical Epidemiology module.


My affiliations are to the Department of Population Health in the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health, and the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH). I am currently working on a number of Wellcome Trust funded projects exploring the links between diets, nutrition, health and the environment. These include the SAHDI (Sustainable and Healthy Diets in India) project, the POSHE (Palm Oil: Sustainability, Health and Economics) project and the FUDAH (Future Diets and Health) project.
