My research interests include interdisciplinary work on sexual and reproductive health, particularly sexual behaviour and contraception among young people, as well as 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 conducting research and running a Public Health MSc, returning to LSHTM in 2005. I am Chair of the LSHTM MSc Ethics Committee.
I teach on the following modules: Principles of Social Research, Sociological Approaches to Health, Family Planning, and Qualitative Methodologies. I supervise PhD and DrPH students.
My research interests include interdisciplinary work on sexual behaviour, particularly of young people, transitions to adulthood, family planning, maternal and newborn health, and complex public health interventions.

Many of my papers are available open access via LSHTM research online. If the paper you need is not there, please contact me via email and I will send it.
