MSc, PhD


Postdoctoral Epidemiologist

Yashvee Dunneram is a postdoctoral epidemiologist mainly working on the Health in Vegetarian Consortium where she will assess the relationships between vegetarian diets and the risk of individual cancer sites by pooling data from several prospective cohort studies. Her research interest extend to several aspects of public health nutrition, with a particular focus on the role of diet as a risk factor for non-communicable diseases. 

Yashvee joined the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in 2020 after completing her PhD in Nutritional Epidemiology at the University of Leeds. There she used data from the UK Women’s Cohort Study and the International collaboration for a Life course Approach to reproductive health and Chronic disease Events (InterLACE) to look into the associations between diet and reproductive indicators of women’s health and reproductive health outcomes (e.g. breast, ovarian and endometrial cancers). She also holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Mauritius.
