Profile

Research Description

Diana uses data from the MRC National Survey of Health and Development to study how biological, psychological and social factors at different stages of life, independently, cumulatively or interactively affect adult physical capability and musculoskeletal function and their change with age. She also uses this life course approach to study women's health, cardiovascular health and wellbeing. Diana is internationally recognised for the advancement of the field of life course epidemiology where she is the author of the acknowledged key texts: "A life course approach to chronic disease epidemiology" (2nd edition Oxford University Press 2004, with Professor Yoav Ben-Shlomo) and "A life course approach to women's health" (Oxford University Press 2002, with Dr Rebecca Hardy). Diana has published over 250 articles in a wide range of peer-reviewed journals.
