My broad research interest is on the environmental influences on population health. My PhD focused on the associations between food environments, dietary behaviours and related health outcomes and health inequalities. I have been looking at how to integrate environmental measures to better understand these health outcomes and their related behaviours. I am particularly exploring the relationship between individual health behaviours (i.e., food choice and consumption) and measurements of spatial accessibility to the related opportunities (i.e., food outlets). I am interested to explore other health outcomes that emerge from environmental determinants on health in various contexts.
