Personal profile

Research interests

Throughout her research career, Rosemary has been working in the field of health inequalities.  Smoking is one of the leading causes of inequalities of health and Rosemary’s current research focusses on tobacco control.  Rosemary’s analysis of tobacco sales data is contributing to analysis of the effectiveness of standardised packaging and tobacco taxation. 

Since joining the University of Bath Rosemary has explored the relationship between health inequalities and smoking through a review of international evidence on socioeconomic status and smoking, statistical analysis of English smoking prevalence by socio economic status and region and evaluations of the UK Stop Smoking Services. She has recently published on socioeconomic status and e-cigarettes.

Rosemary also has an interest in wellbeing. She added a ‘wellbeing’ element to a prospective study of long term outcomes of the English Stop Smoking Services. Previously Rosemary has studied the impact of climate change on urban environments and wellbeing.

Other former work has united Rosemary’s interests in health inequalities and the environment in terms of housing, neighbourhood, air pollution and transport.
