Expertises

life-course epidemiology; childhood body size and growth and short and long-term health consequences; maternal and infant nutrition; obesity and overweight

Main research areas

My work focuses on identifying how childhood body size and growth relate to disease. I primarily investigate the long-term consequences on outcomes including diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. Additionally I work with clinicians who treat childhood obesity to identify how this improves the health of these children.
