Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow in Molecular Epidemiology at the University of Bristol. My research aims to: 1) highlight the relative importance and inter-relationships of several health behaviours (including smoking, e-cigarette use, alcohol, sleep, physical activity) for prioritization in disease prevention strategies and 2) identify molecular pathways (e.g. epigenetic and metabolomic) which could serve as therapeutic targets for intervention. My major areas of focus are on the large-scale integration of molecular data in population-based and clinical health science as well as the development and application of causal inference methods, including Mendelian randomization. I have specific interests in cancer, women's health and lifecourse epidemiology.
