I am a Research Fellow at Queen’s University Belfast working in the SPACE project. I have a background in Environmental Sciences and Public Health. My research is focused on health effects of urban design, transport, and related exposures like air pollution and physical activity in cities. I am currently working on the co-creation of a causal loop diagram, the combination of complex systems approach with causal inference tools like DAGs, and the development of mediation analyses about urban environment factors and cognitive decline outcomes.
