Amy is a PhD student in the Social, Economic and Neighbourhood Determinants of Diet programme within Dietary Public Health. She is based in CEDAR and supervised by Dr Pablo Monsivais. Amy is interested in health inequalities: socioeconomic factors relating to diet quality and obesity prevalence, and social gradients in health outcomes.
Amy has a BSc in Human Sciences from University College London and an MSc in Nutrition for Global Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Prior to joining CEDAR, Amy worked for PLOS, a scientific publisher and Open Access advocate. Through this role, she gained experience in communicating research, and hopes that she will be able to apply this knowledge to her future projects.
