I am a Research Associate for the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University.
My main research interests are around socioeconomic differences in experiences, attitudes and behaviours, and their relationship to inequalities in health and ageing. I use observational and experimental data to examine differences in health behaviours, reproductive scheduling, social trust and, biomarkers of ageing.
