Profile

I joined ScHARR in October 2014 as a Research Associate in the Public Health section and as a part of the CLAHRC YH Public Health and Inequalities theme. Half of my time I am the Project Manager of the Yorkshire Health Study a longitudinal, regional cohort study containing data from over 45,000 people on their healthcare usage, health conditions and health related behaviours. I also work on a collaborative research project between ScHARR and Sheffield City Council evaluating a city wide social housing intervention as well as an evaluation of the British Red Cross Community Connectors Programme.

Before joining ScHARR I completed an MSc in Public Health and Health Related Research at Newcastle University and worked as a Research Assistant in the Institute of Health and Society on a qualitative project on the impact of the Bedroom Tax on health and well-being in one of the most deprived areas in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Research interests

My research interests lie in the interaction between socioeconomic, cultural and behavioural factors and health inequalities, particularly in the case of residents of deprived communities. I have a particular interest in the impact of welfare reform and housing on vulnerable populations.

Current projects:

  • Yorkshire Health Study
  • Housing+
  • British Red Cross Community Connectors
