Linda first joined the CPNP in 2014 to work on the EU-funded SUSDIET project on implementing sustainable diets in Europe and the PROMISE study evaluation of the World Health Organization’s 25 x 25 goals in the UK.
Linda now leads a theme of research in CPNP on modelling the impact of population changes in behavioural risk factors on the burden of non-communicable diseases, health care costs, social care costs and other wider societal costs.
Linda has a PhD from the University of Queensland (2010) and she has broad international experience in building models for evaluating population health impacts of preventive policies and in modelling cost-effectiveness of interventions to address smoking, alcohol misuse, physical inactivity, unhealthy diets and obesity.
