My research involves mathematical modelling of the health impacts of environmental interventions and policies with a particular focus on the built environment.
Before joining LSHTM, 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.
I currently work on the project Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health (CUSSH) funded by the Wellcome Trust under the Our Planet Our Health initiative. The project is aiming to develop evidence to bring about transformative change in cities to address imperatives for population and planetary health.
Previous research projects I have worked on include:
- Development of the HIDEEM model
- Evidence review and modelling to support guidance on excess winter deaths and illnesses by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
- PUrE Intrawise
I am also part of the ongoing Lancet Countdown process, tracking global progress on climate change and health.
