projects » Cycling

I became involved in cycling research during my time at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine studying on the MSc. Epidemiology course. With some friends, I did a project on deaths of cyclists in London that resulted in a publication in the BMC Public Health journal as well as an appearance on BBC Radio 2's The Jeremy Vine Show in November 2010 and featuring in an article in The Guardian.

Subsequently, I looked at estimates of cycling deaths for a modelling tool that was constructed to look at potential health impacts with different scenarios of walking and cycling. This was published in PLOS One.

I also supervised an MSc student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. For her summer project, she wrote a dissertation entitled, Female cycling in England and Wales: gender differences in cycling uptake and rates of cyclists "killed or seriously injured" (KSI) in London and nine UK comparison cities. She was awarded a distinction.
