I have a MSc degree in Health Economics from University of York and a PhD degree in Economics from Trinity College Dublin. My doctoral thesis focused on the economic impacts of tobacco control policies in Ireland. After 2 years of post-doctoral work at the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH) on agri-health economics I started a fellowship on Economics of Health funded by the MRC UK in 2014. My work in the next few years will focus on the direct and indirect impact of food taxes and subsidies on food consumption and population health in the UK.

I remain affiliated with LCIRAH and if you want to learn more about it and agri-health please visit lcirah.ac.uk.
