Dr Clare Tanton
BSc MSc PhD
15-17 Tavistock Place
I completed my PhD at LSHTM in 2008 and then worked at UCL before rejoining LSHTM in 2018. I am an Epidemiologist with an interest in adolescence and expertise in sexual and reproductive health and HIV, large-scale surveys and school-based interventions and has worked both in the UK and internationally.
I am currently working on a pilot trial of an intervention to reduce violence in secondary schools in Uganda and a project examining the relationship between violence in childhood and decent work.
I am involved in the British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes & Lifestyles, leading the module on sexual violence.
I teach on Epidemiology and Statistics modules.
I have PhD students working on the study of sexual behaviour as well as violence against children in primary schools.
My research focuses on adolescents and young people within the fields of sexual health and HIV, menstrual hygiene management and violence. I am particularly interested in the development and evaluation of school-based interventions.
