Heidi Stöckl is an Associate Professor at the Social and Mathematical Epidemiology Group and the Director of the Gender Violence and Health Centre in the Department of Global Health and Development at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and an Honory Senior Lecturer in Clinical Medicine at the University of Witwatersrand. She holds a PhD in Evidence-based Social Intervention from the University of Oxford, Nuffield College, funded by a Rhodes Scholarship.

In collaboration with the Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit in Mwanza, Tanzania, funded by an ERC Starting Grant, she currently conducts the first longitudinal study on intimate partner violence among adult women in a low and middle income country.
