Ms Alexandra Kalbus
Research Degree Student
15-17 Tavistock Place
I 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.
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.
