I joined Sussex in August 2018 having previously worked at the University of Manchester (2010-2018), where I retain an Honorary position. At Manchester I was an ESRC/MRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Joint Hallsworth/ESRC Future Research Fellow, and Lecturer in Social Statistics. Prior to that I held research posts at Northeastern University (Boston, US), and at UCL. I obtained my PhD in Social Epidemiology from UCL, and my Masters in Public Health from Boston University School of Public Health.
