Dr Fiona Caryl

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

Biography

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

I joined the SPHSU in January 2018 having changed fields from ecology, where I specialised in landscape ecology (University of Stirling), urban ecology (University of Melbourne), and geospatial modelling (private sector). I now apply geospatial data science approaches borrowed from my ecological background to explore environmental determinents of public health in urban environments using big secondary data.

I have a PhD in Biological and Environmental Sciences from the University of Stirling; an MSc in Applied Ecology and Conservation from the University of East Anglia; and a BSc (hons) in Zoology from the University of Leeds.


Research interests

My research has always revolved around determining where, why, and how organisms move through and distribute themselves in their landscapes. Much of my career has been spent researching the habits of non-human animals, but now my focus is on humans.

My research interests lie in understanding the effect of the natural and built environment on public health, and how this could be changed to afford greater, more equitable, opportunities for all. I am particularly interested in determining how the environments that people are exposed to in their daily lives affects their physical and mental health.

I am currently working with GPS data from the SPACES (Studying Physical Activity in Children’s Environments across Scotland) project to investigate exposure to healthy and unhealthy commodities within the 'activity spaces' of children in Scotland. Specifically, I am quantifying socioeconomic inequalities in exposure to shops selling tobacco, as well as determining how exposure to natural space effects children's mental health.

In spring 2020 I will begin an MRC Skills Development Felloship, which I will use to investigate gender and place-based inequalities in exposure to unhealthy commodities, and availbility of/access to healthy commodities.
