Jennifer joined Oxford as a teaching and research fellow in epidemiology and statistics in 2014. She assists with lectures, tutorials and curriculum development for the MSc in Global Health Science & Epidemiology course. She is a lead for the Statistics and Epidemiology modules, and she coordinates the Summer Lecture Series.
Her current research examines the measurement and influence of adiposity, dietary intake and other vascular risk factors with the risk of cardiovascular disease in large, prospective studies. She is currently a research member of the common room for Kellogg College.
Before coming to Oxford, Jennifer completed a masters degree in Research in Psychology at the University of Manchester, and a PhD in Epidemiology at King’s College London in 2015. Her previous research examined psychosocial influences on the development of socioeconomic inequalities in mental and physical health across the life course.
In 2017, Jennifer won the Medical Sciences Division Early Career Teaching Excellence Award. She also won 'Most Acclaimed Lecturer of the Year' in 2018 for the Oxford Student Union student-led teaching awards.
