I have recently started as Research Fellow in the Department of Public Health, Environments and Society. I am also finishing my PhD in Public Health at LSHTM, and hold a bachlor's and master's degree in Health Sciences. These study programmes gave me with insights across multiple disciplines, including epidemiology, health economics, medicine, statistics, ethics, public health, occupational health and health promotion.

Research

As a Research Fellow, I carry out quantitative research using consumer purchase data to understand dietary inequalities and drivers of consumption. In my PhD project, I explored the relationship between the neighbourhood food environment and food and drink purchasing in England, and how this changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. I linked consumer purchase data to large-scale, mainly publicly available environmental data and explored associations using quantitative methods. My PhD is funded by a Bloomsbury Colleges Studentship, and my current position is with the NIHR SPHR.
