I qualified in medicine at the University of Saint-Etienne, France and worked as a clinician before entering epidemiological research. I completed an MSc in epidemiology in Paris and a PhD in epidemiology at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Lyon, France. Before joining the School in July 2002, I spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow in Montréal (Canada) in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit of Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique - Institut Armand-Frappier. I worked mainly on cancer risks associated with occupational and environmental exposures, and on developments in methodology.

Teaching

I have been involved in distance learning and various face-to-face courses at the School on both the Epidemiology MSc and the Medical Statistics MSc.

I usually supervise student projects from the Msc Epidemiology as well as from the MSc Public Health and MSc Demography & Health.

I am the Exam Board Chair of the DL MSc Epidemiology.

Research

My research focusses on inequalities in cancer care and cancer outcomes, with a wide range of projects to identify the mechanisms underlying these inequalities by socio-demographic characteristics (socio-economic deprivation, ethnicity, age, gender, geographic area), as well as on extending the methodology and tools which help us answer our research questions. The research is conducted in collaboration with stakeholders and research partners in the UK and around the world.
