Keywords: obesity; physical activity loyalty card; individual time and risk preference

In 2009 I graduated with a first class honours degree from a four year course in Land Use and Environmental Management with Professional studies.  I have completed a Masters Degree in Public Health as part of a four year ESRC studentship looking at economics and obesity, funded by CoENI.  My PhD research focused on using Revealed Preference questions to illicit individual’s time preference rates and discount rates to test whether there is a relationship between these variables and BMI.
