I teach public health to medical students at the University of Cambridge Clinical School. I also work as a sessional GP locally in Cambridge.
I am an Assistant Director of Public Health Studies within the Public Health Education Group where my role includes:
- leadership of global health and population health teaching strands (clinical students)
- development and delivery of teaching on environmental change and sustainability (clinical students)
- leading environmental epidemiology /planetary health teaching units (MPhil)
- supervision of students’ projects related to above subjects
- development and leadership of the Health for All initiative on social justice in medical education
- support Director of Public Health Education Group and leadership of Clinical School in further development of medical teaching programme
I do occasional teaching of other universities such as London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the University of Oxford.
I am co-lead of the sustainability theme for Cambridge Public Health Interdisciplinary Research Centre. In 2021-22 I was a Cambridge Zero David Mackay research associate at Darwin College. My research interests include decarbonisation of the healthcare, health co-benefits from climate action and how we can catalyse urgent systemic change to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. I supervise student projects on a range of research questions related to environmental sustainability and health, notably recently on inhalers in respiratory care. I sit on the NHS England national inhalers expert working group.
