My research interests include interdisciplinary work on sexual behaviour, particularly of young people, maternal and newborn health, health promotion, and involving communities in promoting health. I have an overarching interest in methodology and developing methods to investigate complex social interventions. I hold an undergraduate degree in Human Sciences from Oxford, MSc Medical Demography at LSHTM, and an interdisciplinary PhD and postdoc in young people's sexual behaviour and behaviour change, with fieldwork in Mexico City. I spent some time at Imperial College, London where I conducted research and ran a Public Health MSc, returning to LSHTM in 2005.
I organise and teach on the Principles of Social Research compulsory module in Term 1, and teach on various other modules. I supervise PhD and DrPH students.
