BA MSc MRes PhD
15-17 Tavistock Place
My primary research interests are in the contextual and socio-environmental determinants of health (particularly diet and physical activity) and the application of novel statistical methods. I am currently working on an MRC-funded project aiming to analyse the impact of policy and industry-led changes in food systems on household food and beverage consumption. In this project, I work with large disaggregated household food and beverage expenditure data.
I joined the School in October 2014 to conduct an ESRC-funded PhD project on the social and environmental determinants of physical activity using the Olympic Regeneration in East London (ORiEL) study. Prior to that, I worked for several years at the Belgian Scientific Institute of Public Health. I have an undergraduate degree in Sociology from the Free University of Brussels, a Masters in Philosophy of Science from The Sorbonne (Paris) and a complementary Masters in Applied Statistics from the Catholic University of Leuven.
Since May 2020, I spend most of my time at the Belgian Scientific Institute of Public Health (Sciensano), where I lead the National Food Consumption Survey.
I am a member of the Population Health Innovation Lab (PHI|Lab).
I teach on the MSc modules ‘Basic Statistics for Public Health & Policy‘, ‘Evaluation of Public Health Interventions‘ and ‘Advanced Statistical Modelling‘ at LSHTM.
I supervise the research of Masters, DrPH and PhD students and welcome enquiries from any prospective research students.
