I joined SEHR in 2007, after completing an MSc in Public Health at the School. Before attending LSHTM, I worked as a researcher for two public policy research think-tanks in the U.S. I also completed an MSc in Social Research Methods (Statistics), in 2004 at the London School of Economics. I recently completed my PhD in Social Epidemiology.

Teaching

I am a seminar leader on the MSc module Principles of Social Research and contribute to teaching of GIS short courses.

Research

My main research interest is in transport and health. Recent projects have examined the impact of 20 mph zones on road injury in London; how people choose to travel in London with a particular emphasis on cycling; the impact of free bus travel for young people on public health in London; and the effects of reduced night-time streetlight on road traffic crashes and crime in England and Wales. My current project examines the health co-benefits of climate change mitigation strategies.
