Ms Christina Buckton

  • Research Assistant (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

Christina is a Research Assistant in the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit. She is part of the Informing Healthy Public Policy Programme where she works on projects examining macro level determinants of health such as mass media, political and corporate influences that shape emerging public health policy debates.

Christina is a public health nutritionist with a particular interest in eating behaviour and what drives healthy eating choices. She completed her MSc in Human Nutrition at the University of Glasgow, during which she conducted research into public perceptions of terms designed to convey the idea of healthy eating and the implications for public health campaigns. Christina has expertise in a variety of qualitative and mixed methods including; media content and critical discourse analysis, discourse network analysis and rapid realist review and evaluation.


Research interests

Christina's current research interests include analysis of the debate on effective health policies designed to reduce the development of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) arising from lifestyle factors such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, alcohol and tobacco consumption. Public debate is a crucial part of developing and enacting such policies, however this process is poorly understood. Research suggests that the media play a powerful role in forming public perceptions, and thus potential acceptance, of public health policies. Christina is currently investigating the discourse around the introduction of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy (SDIL) in the UK.
