I work at the Newcastle University Institute of Health and Society. My research uses observational and experimental data to investigate how lower socioeconomic status environments cause differences in health behaviour, reproductive scheduling, social trust and cooperation. I have also used my findings to devise psychological “nudges” to encourage healthier food choice.
