Asha Kaur

BSc, DPhil


Asha’s research interests include population approaches to improve nutrition, food labelling, and nutrient profiling. Asha is currently working on the microPRIME project.  The aim of this project is to develop a novel microsimulation model that will predict future heart attack incidence rates in England.

Asha also worked on the CLYMBOL project which looked at the role of health-related symbols and claims in consumer behaviour.  Asha’s DPhil examined health-related claims on food labels and involved modelling their impact, and the impact of potential regulatory scenarios, on UK population mortality data.

She has been involved in several literature reviews including a Cochrane systematic review update on physical activity interventions and, more recently, a systematic review of the impact of health-related claims on dietary choices.  She previously also worked on the Access To Nutrition Index (ATNI) project and the CPNP’s Coronary Heart Disease Statistics publications.

Asha Joined the Centre on Population Approaches for NCD Prevention in 2007. Before that she worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Oxford's Health Services Research Unit working on a systematic review of forensic mental health outcomes. Asha graduated in 2005 with a BSc in Clinical Psychology from the University of Kent.
