Biography

Fiona is a Research Associate in the Neighbourhoods and Communities Programme of the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit.

Fiona joined the SPHSU in January 2018 having changed fields from ecology, where she specialised in spatial ecology. Fiona now applies geospatial data science approaches borrowed from her ecological background to explore environmental determinents of public health using big secondary data.

Before joining the SPHSU, Fiona worked as a Geospatial Modeller within the renewable energy sector for 3.5 years. Here she used statistical models to identify spatially-explicit change in species distributions before and after environmental impacts as part of Environmental Risk Assessments.

Prior to this, Fiona was a Research Assistant and then a Research Fellow with the Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Her work, over 5 years there, involved investigating aspects of the spatial ecology of native fauna in urbanising landscapes.

Fiona completed a PhD in Biological and Environmental Sciences at the University of Stirling (2008); a MSc in Applied Ecology and Conservation at the University of East Anglia (2003); and a BSc (hons) in Zoology at the University of Leeds (2001).


Research interests

Fiona's research interests lie in understanding how the interacting influences of the social and physical environment can promote public health benefits and reduce inequalities. She is particularly interested in determining how people's mobility--where and how they travel through their landscapes--affects their physical and mental health.

Fiona is currently working with GPS data from the SPACES (Studying Physical Activity in Children’s Environments across Scotland) project to investigate aspects of mobility and space-use of children in Scotland. Specifically, she is researching place-related socioeconomic inequalities in exposure of children to 'environmental bads', such as shops selling tobacco, and how exposure to natural space effects children's mental health.
