I will be a supervisor on a new interdisciplinary PhD project looking at factors associated with Obesity in children funded by and hosted at Leeds Beckett School of Sport. Please pass on to anyone who might be interested.
Understanding the inter-relationship between individual, social and environmental factors associated with Obesity in children
Obesity is a public health priority – yet existing obesity reduction strategies have met with limited success. This project will utilise data from the Millennium Cohort Study, a multidisciplinary research project following the lives of children born in the UK in 2000-01. This project aims to:
- Understand how inter-relationships between individual, social and environmental factors contribute to obesity in children.
- Understand the temporal patterning of individual, social and environmental factors in relation to obesity in children.
- Determine ‘critical periods’ of age when individual, social and environmental factors have the most substantial causal impact on obesity in children.
