My research involves mathematical modelling of the health impacts of environmental interventions and policies with a particular focus on climate change mitigation strategies.
Before joining SEHR, I worked as a Research Fellow at The Bartlett School, University College London. I also have a PhD in air pollution exposure modelling from Imperial College London.
My research is currently funded through two Our Planet Our Health grants awarded by the Wellcome Trust:
- SHUE aims to build a detailed database on global cities and their populations with the aim of identifying the inter-relationship between city characteristics, their use of energy and other resources, and health-related behaviours and exposures.
- SADHI aims to define healthy and sustainable diets in India and to model the health impacts resulting from adoption of those diets.
Previously I worked on the PURGE project which modelled the health impacts of changes in environmental exposures due to greenhouse gas emission reduction policies in various sectors of society (housing, food and agriculture, transport, power generation).
I was also involved in the development of the HIDEEM model of the health impacts of home energy efficiency measures for the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and a systematic evidence review to support the development of guidance on excess winter deaths and illnesses by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
I have previously worked on projects including PUrE Intrawise, LUCID and DAPPLE.
