  • Growing up during neighbourhood change: The impacts of urban regeneration on the psychosocial health of young people in South East London: This is a study that will examine the effects of urban regeneration understood as a process of neighborhood change on two aspects of psychosocial health -common mental disorders (CMD) and wellbeing- of young people in South East London.  It is an ESRC Studentship from the King’s College London Department of Geography.
  • HYPE: The HYPE (improving the Health of Young PeoplE) Project is a web-based recruitment, risk assessment, and resource platform for young adults (aged 16 and over) that will facilitate young people’s involvement in research and improve access to online and community-based social and health-related resources. The survey seeks to identify biological, psychological, socio-economic risk factors for long-term physical and mental health disorders together with associated health service use in young people.
  • TIDES: The Tackling Inequalities and Discrimination Experiences in health Services (TIDES) study investigates how discrimination experienced bu both patients and healthcare practitioners may generate and perpetuate inequalities in health service use. The TIDES study is important for understanding how differences in social status, such as gender, ethnicity, migration status or social class, can create barriers between patients, practitioners and healthcare systems.

  • Gambling-related harm among recent migrant communities in the UK: responses to a 21st century urban phenomenon: This project will investigate migrant gambling in the urban settings of Leeds and London – places where there are higher than average migrant communities, and it aims to: 1) Identify urban social processes which may influence gambling behaviours among new migrant communities and to better theorise about the potential impact of gambling for these communities; 2) Engage with community stakeholders to explore their awareness of gambling-related harm, the impact of gambling related harm on their community and explore potential solutions and risk reduction mechanisms. the report for this study will be available in 2019.
