Personal profile

Research interests

I am a NIHR School for Public Health Research postdoctoral launching fellow. I have a particular interest in research on alcohol-related harm, prenatal exposures, child development and methods to improve causal inference.

Currently, my research includes work on natural experiment methodology, prenatal alcohol use and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). I recently led on the quantitative evaluation of the effect of public health team engagement in alcohol licensing on alcohol-related health and crime (ExILEnS; Exploring the Impact of alcohol Licensing in England and Scotland).

Previously, I have conducted systematic reviews and meta-analysis for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines including Learning Disabilities and Challenging Behaviour and Antenatal and Postnatal Mental Health. I also have an interest in research with forensic populations, having worked for the National Offender Management Service.

I have a BSc in Applied Psychology (Cardiff University), a MSc in Forensic Psychology (Cardiff Metropolitan University) and a PhD in Epidemiology (Cardiff University). In 2017 I joined the Centre for Public Health, based in the Population Health Sciences Institute at the University of Bristol.
