Research topic: Investigating relationships of neighbourhood deprivation, social capital and stress on health and wellbeing

My research concerns the mechanisms and temporality of the relationships between neighbourhood deprivation, social capital and stress with overall health and wellbeing. My research draws on life-course and biosocial theories and employs advanced quantitative techniques, particularly multilevel modelling and mediation analysis to expose complex health and place relationships. I am using data from the British Household Panel Survey and the Understanding Society study to conduct the research.
