Overview

I am a Research Associate at the Centre for Development, Evaluation, Complexity and Implementation in Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer), a UKCRC Public Health Centre of Excellence, based at Cardiff University.

I have a particular interest in researching population health and wellbeing through the use of quantitative methodologies, including statistical modelling and GIS. My most recent published works include exploring change over time in youth smoking and cannabis use, investigating short term effects of introducing e-cigarette regulation on youth vaping, and examing sources of potential bias when combining routine data linkage and a national survey of secondary school children.
