My main theme of interest is the European Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ELSPAC) of which the Avon study (ALSPAC or Children of the 90s) was a component.  The historical importance of the Avon study and the influences of it, not only on subsequent longitudinal birth cohorts, but also on policy makers within the wider medical research community.  ELSPAC faced many difficulties including the fall of the Eastern bloc and subsequent economic hardships faced by those countries makes a fascinating comparison with Avon.  I am currently working on the preparation of the ALSPAC Administrative Archive for submission to the University of Bristol Library's Special Collections, and obtaining oral histories from significant individuals involved in the planning and implementation of the study.

Secondly, I am working with Caroline Taylor and Pauline Emmett on a project entitled 'Picking eating in the ALSPAC cohort: Determinants and related health outcomes".
