Research summary

I am an epidemiologist focusing on the use of causal methods to investigate the causes and consequences of lifestyle behaviours such as smoking and caffeine consumption. I run the consortium for Causal Analysis Research in Tobacco and Alcohol (CARTA), which uses Mendelian randomisation methods to explore the causal effects of smoking. I am a member of the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit.

I have a degree in Biology from the University of Oxford and an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Immediately following my MSc, I worked as a research assistant at LSHTM coordinating a research project on children's eye health. I moved to the University of Bristol in 2008 to undertake a PhD in the genetic epidemiology of obesity. Since completing my PhD, I have been working in the School of Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol where my research is focused on the health consequences of smoking.
