On behalf of the Institute of Applied Health Research I would like to welcome you to the Master of Public Health programme.
I recently took over as Deputy Director of the MPH and was appointed as the new Post-Graduate Teaching Lead for the Institute after being the Institute’s Director of Graduate Studies for the last three years (2014-2017). I completed a PhD in Cancer Epidemiology in 2009 at the University of Birmingham and before that I completed two MSc’s at the Maastricht University (Netherlands); one in Epidemiology and one in Health Sciences. My primary research interests are in the field of cancer survivorship, particularly the long-term complications of cancer treatment in individuals diagnosed with cancer before age 40 years.
I hope you will enjoy your time in Birmingham and wish you all the best on the MPH.
