Current Position: 1980 to present. Medical Research Council Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit, University of Southampton, UK. Medical Research Council Senior Scientist and Professor of Biostatistics.
Summary: I am a collaborating applied statistician with a special interest in the early life origins of health and disease. I worked for thirty years with the late Professor David Barker as he developed these ideas. I research how events early in life programme consequences later in life, studying cohorts in which early life measurements were measured in particular detail. I have close collaborations with birth cohorts in the UK, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Jamaica and New Delhi. I am a member of the COHORTS collaboration, a collection of such studies in Low and Middle Income Countries.
