Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently interested in the application of genetic epidemiological techniques in combination with conventional causal inference methods to lifecourse epidemiology. Through this research, I am inspired to identify important translatable messages that have the potential to elucidate the benefits of time-specific disease prevention strategies. Whilst completing my PhD, I additionally worked part-time at the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit as a Mendelian Randomisation (MR) Analyst which largely involved the exploration of novel MR methods for longitudinal research and building a lifecourse MR consortium. I also spent a portion of my PhD at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience - University of Queensland where I maintain an affiliation and work closely with the genetic epidemiology team there on intergenerational research.

Prior to beginning my PhD, I completed a part-time MSc in Epidemiology (Distinction) at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine at the same time as working as a Project Manager and Researcher in their Departments of Disease Control and Infectious Disease Epidemiology. There, my research focused on health equity, assessing the relationship between social factors indicative of socioeconomic position and adverse outcomes following pre- and postnatal exposure to vector-borne diseases, predominately in the Latin American context. I have spent a significant amount of time working in Brazil, India, and Vietnam. My early academic background lies in anthropology and previous work experience in international development.
