DPhil Student

Katherine Newell gained a BSc in Geography (first class honours) in 2015 from Queen’s University Belfast. She remained at Queen’s University and completed a Master of Public Health (MPH) with distinction where her thesis focused on the association between aircraft noise and prevalence of poor mental health in Belfast.

Following completion of her MPH she joined the Clinical Trial Service Unit in October 2016. Her main research interests centre on environmental epidemiology and her DPhil project is examining the acute and chronic health impacts of ambient air pollution in China, utilising the China Kadoorie Biobank’s cohort of 0.5 million participants. This research aims to examine the cardiorespiratory health impacts of air pollution within the cohort, utilising both spatial and temporal data to accurately determine exposure status. Katherine is generously funded by the Medical Research Council’s Doctoral Training Partnership.
