I am an Epidemiologist with an interest in adolescence and expertise in sexual and reproductive health and violence against children. I have worked on large-scale surveys and school-based interventions and my research has been both in the UK and international.
I am currently working on trials of school-based interventions to reduce violence in schools and to improve menstrual health management in Uganda and Tanzania. As well as on a mixed-methods evidence synthesis project examining the relationship between violence in childhood and decent work and the potenial for skills training programmes to support young people into decent work in Uganda.
I also lead the sexual violence module in the British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes & Lifestyles (Natsal).
I teach on Epidemiology and Statistics modules.
I have PhD students researching violence against children in primary schools as well as applying mediation approaches to a menstrual health trial.
My research focuses on adolescents and young people within the fields of sexual health, menstrual health and violence. I am particularly interested in the development and evaluation of school-based interventions.
