BiographyI have a background in clinical medicine and public health practice. My research has contributed to understanding the life course and genetic epidemiology of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and women’s reproductive health; with a particular interest in the relationship between women’s reproductive health and her, and that of her offspring’s, cardiometabolic risk. I am also interested in developing methods for improving causal inference. I enjoy teaching and have experience of teaching to a number of different audiences in a number of different countries, including leading a programme of teaching ‘real life’ evidence based practice in the UK, epidemiological methods for a Masters programme in Uganda and a number of postgraduate short courses in the UK and Europe. I also really enjoy supervising junior and mid-grade staff and have had the pleasure of seeing some incredibly bright ‘junior’ staff become academic leads and in the process of watching them make this rise have learnt as much from them as vice versa.
