Biography:
Rebecca is an ESRC-funded PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, affliated to the International Centre for Lifecourse Studies in Society and Health (ICLS). Rebecca graduated from the University of Wolverhampton in 2007 with BSc (Hons) Human Biology & Health Studies and, following this, studied MSc Health & Society: Social Epidemiology within the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at UCL.

Research Interests:
Rebecca’s PhD research project involves investigating how adverse family events (e.g. parental conflict and divorce/separation) experienced in childhood influence mental health in adulthood, with a particular focus on the effect these situations have on the security of parent-child relationships. The role of the socioeconomic environment will also be investigated and a comparison between two British birth cohorts will be conducted to assess period changes.
