Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Environmental Planning, Queen's University Belfast

I have an interdisciplinary background in architecture, urban design, and public health. My research focuses on generating, translating, and scaling up evidence for reducing environmental health and social disparities. My interests lie in understanding relationships between the environment and human health, documenting and reducing spatial inequalities, improving measures to quantify health behaviors (physical activity, sedentary behavior) and relevant exposures (natural, built, social environments) using geostatistical approaches and emerging technologies.
