Currently based in Madrid
I joined SEHR in 2007 having previously completed an MSc in Public Health (Environment and Health) at the School. Before this I had worked for a few years in general public health for the NHS in Scotland. My original training was as a clincial pharmacist.
I am involved in the Environment, Health and Sustainable Development unit via distance learning.
My main area of interest is climate change and health. I have worked on a number of global and European projects looking at health outcomes including those associated with undernutrition, coastal floods, labour productivity and diarrhoeal disease.
I am also doing a part-time PhD which is looking at the relation between climate change and undernutrition from different perspectives and using different methods. The work is being supervised by Sari Kovats and Zaid Chalabi. As part of this work I have been informally studying methods for modelling dynamical systems and political economy theories of health.
