- Mexico City Prospective Study Research Group
BA, DLSHTM, MSc
With experience in acute medicine, epidemiology and public health in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America, Louisa is passionate about improving health at population level.
After graduating with an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, she completed courses in epidemiology with Harvard and Johns Hopkins, and co-ordinated British, European and Global epidemiological studies with Imperial College London and the Medical Research Council. Her role involved design, conduct and analysis of large multi-centre standardised surveys, cohort studies and biobanks, follow-up through surveillance and vital registries, advisory for the Department of Health and Pharma, and reviewing for scientific journals.
The current work focuses on the effects of adiposity and related preventable risk factors for premature mortality, such as diabetes and hypertension in the Mexico City Prospective Study and the Prospective Studies Collaboration . Other interests include novel vasculo-metabolic risk factors and disease models, translation of research findings into public health policy, and teaching.
Outside work, she likes arts, photography and world cuisines.
