Room 3.49, Henry Cotton Building.
Senior Lecturer in Public Health.
I arrived in the UK in 1993 having completed my undergraduate and masters degrees in Canada. In 1994 I began my PhD here at LJMU which involved the development and implementation of the primary phase of the Liverpool Longitudinal Study on Smoking. I worked on various other projects as a research fellow before moving to the University of Salford in 2002 where I held a joint post - as programme leader for the Masters in Public Health and Society and Qualitative Lead for Heath R& D Northwest in the Centre for Public Health Research. During this time, I was also the Qualitative lead on an ESF funded project on age discrimination in the workplace conducted by the Salford Business School. I rejoined LJMU in 2007 as a senior lecturer in public. I teach on both the undergraduate and post graduate programmes and am involved in a range of research projects.
