Biography

Amy joined the University as a Research Associate with the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in January of 2014, where she works within the Informing Healthy Public Policy team. Prior to this she carried out research at the University of the Highlands and Islands and the University of Stirling on community engagement in health decision making, greenspaces and health, new health service roles and models, and language and health communication. Amy received her PhD in health research from the University of Aberdeen in 2013.

Amy's research interests include methods of knowledge translation and exchange in a health care context, health and place, and the role of language in understandings of health. She is currently the primary qualitative researcher on the Traffic and Health in Glasgow project, using innovative qualitative methods to investigate the health impacts of changes to the urban built environment. Amy is also involved in developing the Understanding Health Research tool, as well as carrying out international collaborative research with colleagues in Sweden that investigates comparative representations of childhood obesity in the media.
