Natalie is researching the role of adverse childhood experiences, social context and economic position on child and adolescent mental health in a PhD Studentship in Lifecourse Epidemiology and Public Mental Health, supervised by Professor Simon Gilbody and Dr Ruth Wadman. The project uses the rich data collected in the Born in Bradford study.
Natalie started working in health research after completing the PG Diploma in Health Research and Master of Public Health. She had worked as a Clinical Research Officer at South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, a Data Manager in the Clinical Trials Service Unit of the University of Oxford, and a Research Fellow in the Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research of Bradford Institute for Health Research, mainly in clinical trials and systematic reviews about mental health and ageing. She has developed an interest in epidemiology from these experiences; hence she has been studying in a PG Diploma course in Epidemiology.
Natalie's research interests are lifecourse epidemiology, applied epidemiology, public health and mental health.
