Research

My PhD project explores how food the COVID-19 pandemic influences food purchases and food environments in England, and their relationship. I use purchase data from ~1500 households in Greater London and Northern England and associate 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. 

I am funded by a Bloomsbury Colleges, University of London Studentship.
