Profile

Research Description

Mai has recently been looking at the links between neighbourhood environments and health, examining factors such as neighbourhood deprivation, social capital, ethnic density and segregation. Her work also has a methodological focus on multilevel modelling to investigate contextual effects on health. In 2010 she joined the MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing and is using data from the 1946 British birth cohort study to look at the social environment, health and ageing. Prior to that, she worked on a range of UK datasets, including the English Longitudinal Study for Ageing and the Whitehall II study.

Research Activities

Explaining the contribution of health risk factors and medical therapies in the differential decline in CHD mortality between socioeconomic groups

Investigating socioeconomic variations in access to chlamydia testing in young people in England

Neighbourhoods and health

Education Description

Mai is course tutor for three statistics courses run through the UCL Graduate School covering multilevel modelling and longitudinal data analysis.
