Projects per year
I am a statistical epidemiologist. My two main interests are: i) the life course epidemiology of obesity and cardiovascular disease, and ii) the complex and bidirectional relationships between social factors (socioeconomic disadvantage, adverse childhood experiences) and health.
I have experience of statistical techniques for repeated measures data, and in the integration of genetic data into epidemiological studies.
