Plastics and Global Health
I am a research assistant and doctoral student in the Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA) programme, within the Nutrition Group at LSHTM. My research spans various aspects of food systems, nutrition and health. My doctoral project is modelling human health impacts of global plastic waste reduction strategies and circular economy transitions.
I completed my MSc in Nutrition for Global Health at LSHTM in 2018 and have a BA in Modern Languages (French and Spanish) from the University of Bristol.
I am co-organiser and teach on the Maternal and Child Nutrition core module for the Nutrition for Global Health MSc at LSHTM.
My doctoral research project explores the effect of plastic waste reduction strategies, including circular economy approaches, on global health outcomes, considering environmental health pathways including climate change, air pollution and toxicity.
I have worked on large-scale evidence syntheses for food system plastic effects on the environment, food security and human health, and also on evidence linking food systems and nutrition to global mental health.
