Tel.

I am a PhD student and NIHR Doctoral Fellow working on public health policy on the food environment. 

I hold a BSc in Liberal Arts and Sciences with specialisations in Psychology and Global Health from Erasmus University Rotterdam and an MSc in Health and Society from Wageningen University. Prior to joining LSHTM I have worked as a public health consultant evaluating local health interventions and as a Research Assistant at Maastricht University (Netherlands) where I conducted research on whole-of-society health initiatives.

I first joined LSHTM in 2020 to work as a pre-doctoral fellow affiliated with the NIHR School for Public Health Research (NIHR SPHR). In this role I was involved in various research projects focused on local-level public health, health inequalities and the commercial determinants of health.

Research

My research explores the integration of public health objectives with efforts to revitalise high streets in England, specifically looking at how decisions about local retail environments are made and how practitioners and policymakers engage with private/third sector stakeholders in these processes. I am interested in a variety of products and services that are made available to people on the high street that may negatively impact on health (e.g. fast food, alcohol, tobacco, gambling).
