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?

Development of an evaluation framework to support local authorities to evaluate the impact of a whole systems approach to tackle obesity
There is growing recognition that a ‘whole systems approach’ is required to effectively address obesity and Public Health England is publishing guidance in Spring 2019 to support local authorities with implementing this approach. However, there is currently no specific whole systems evaluation framework available. This PhD will develop a new standard evaluation framework for whole systems evaluations, that can be used by local authorities to effectively understand and measure the impact of this new approach.
