I am a Research Fellow and senior alcohol policy modeller in the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group at the University of Sheffield. My research primarily focusses on the potential impact of alcohol policies and understanding how these effects may differ across different groups in the population. I am particularly interested in the extent to which different approaches to alcohol policy can widen or narrow inequalities in health between the most and least well off in society.
I have undertaken extensive research into alcohol pricing policies, including taxation and Minimum Unit Pricing. I have also worked on brief intervention policies, where healthcare workers discuss patients' drinking with them, and the relationship between the availability of alcohol and levels of alcohol-related harm.
