Lucy joined IDE in January 2008 to work on a Wellcome funded project on herpesvirus infections in early childhood. Before that Lucy worked at the UCL Institute of Child Health on mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis C virus. During her time at ICH she completed an MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM (2000) and her PhD (2006).
In September 2016 Lucy moved from IDE to MSD to work on a study of asthma phenotypes.

Lucy is co-module organiser for EPM105 'Writing and Reviewing Epidemiological Papers', one of the core modules of the Distance Learning Epidemiology course. She also teaches on the in-house Extended Epidemiology module for MSc students and is a tutor for MSc Epidemiology.
Lucy is currently working on a study of asthma phenotypes in five centres around the world. She is also continuing her work on the Born in Bradford Allergy and Infection Study, which aims to assess the effect of age at infection with common herpesviruses on immune function and risk of atopy.
Lucy's previous research has mainly focussed on mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis C virus and the European Paediatric HCV Network.
