Personal profile

Personal Statement

I'm a Public Health and Health Policy doctoral researcher investigating a new iteration of urban mental health initiatives: thriving cities. The focus of my research is social connectivity in cities and its impact on mental health. There is an international scope to the research with focus cities including Amsterdam, Edinburgh, and Dublin. The research investigates how thriving city initiatives involve themselves in and impact social connectivity. My overarching research interests are in wellbeing, social isolation and connectivity, and social and environmental determinants of health.
