Health and regeneration, Health Impact Assessment, the determinants of health, social and economic change and health, lay knowledge and 'civic intelligence'.
Currently leads a research theme within the Cardiff Institute of Society, Health and Ethics entitled ‘The Determinants of Health and Regeneration’ in CISHE. Much of the research in this theme draws on the experiences communities such as in Wales, where local expressions of global economic developments, such as the decline of the mining and steel industries, are associated with very poor health.
Current sub-themes in this area of research include:
- The role of public health in current ideas about regeneration
- The interrelationships between ‘health behaviours’ and the social, economic and environmental determinants of health inequalities
- The role of community level factors, such as social networks, in mediating the impact of economic decline on individual health
- The interplay of contested forms of knowledge in understanding health risks and assets
- The impact on health and well being of local and national health policies, programmes, projects on inequalities in health
- The role of history and place in understanding the health of people living in particular areas
- Global factors that impact on health equity at a local level and the potential for local/national measures to counteract or address these
