Health and Wellbeing
PhD Researcher in Health and Wellbeing (ESRC 1+3)
College of Life and Environmental Sciences / Medical School, University of Exeter
Start date: October 2020
Research topic: Investigating the relationship between multiple environmental exposures and inequalities in common mental disorders in England.
Two topics fascinate me: the environments we live and grow up in, and the way that health is unequally patterned in society. I intend to explore and develop new understanding of how our local environment and its many characteristics protect or harm our mental health. Working closely with Public Health England will allow me to create evidence that directly informs those with the power to utilise it. Importantly I will also geographically map the results, allowing a wider audience to visually engage with the findings.
Research supervisors: Dr Ben Wheeler (University of Exeter), Professor Chris Metcalfe (University of Bristol)
