Queen Mary University of London

Neil is a social epidemiologist investigating the social determinants of health operating across the life course. He currently works on the Olympic Regeneration in East London (ORiEL) project, funded by the National Institute for Health Research, exploring the impact of urban regeneration on young people and their families. This longitudinal cohort study investigates how regeneration programmes influence health and psychological well-being and their wider determinants by comparing changes in families in an area undergoing regeneration with areas with no comparable regeneration.
