My research involves mathematical modelling of the health impacts of environmental interventions and policies with a particular focus on climate change mitigation strategies.

Before joining SEHR, I worked as a Research Fellow at The Bartlett School, University College London. I also have a PhD in air pollution exposure modelling from Imperial College London.

Teaching

I am the module organiser of Environmental Health Policy (PHM206) on the MSc Public Health by Distance Learning. I also lecture and act as a personal tutor on the MSc Public Health.

Research

I currently work on two Our Planet Our Health grants awarded by the Wellcome Trust:

  • SHUE aims to build a detailed database on global cities and their populations with the aim of identifying the inter-relationship between city characteristics, their use of energy and other resources, and health-related behaviours and exposures.
  • SADHI aims to define healthy and sustainable diets in India and to model the health impacts resulting from adoption of those diets.

I am also part of the ongoing Lancet Countdown process.
