My research involves applied mathematical modelling of environmental interventions/policies and their impacts on human health, with a particular focus on climate change mitigation strategies.

Before joining LSHTM, I worked 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 the project Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health (CUSSH) funded by the Wellcome Trust under its 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.

I also lead a health evaluation of the Irish Government's Warmth and Wellbeing scheme, which is providing home energy efficiency upgrades to people in parts of Dublin who are in energy poverty and are living with chronic respiratory conditions.

I have previously worked on the following projects:

I am also part of the ongoing Lancet Countdown process, which is tracking global progress on climate change and health.
