Alexandra did her undergraduate and master degree in Health Sciences. These study programmes equipped her with insights across multiple disciplines, including epidemiology, health economics, medicine, statistics, ethics, public health, occupational health and health promotion. When she found her interest in epidemiological methods, she engaged in various projects, ranging from the surveillance of students' health and health behaviour to exploring the influence of deforestation on dengue fever in the Brazilian Amazon.

Research

Alexandra's PhD project explores how food the COVID-19 pandemic influences food purchases and food environments in England, and their relationship. In doing so, she employs purchase data from ~1500 households in Greater London and Northern England and associates them with large-scale, mainly publicly available environmental data. The PhD will take advantage of looking through a multidisciplinary lens by integrating epidemiological, geographical and economic approaches.
