Research Interests

Louise is currently working as a quantitative researcher on the M74 study (led by David Ogilvie), a longitudinal follow-up of the health effects of a new urban motorway. This project examines the individual, household and population impacts of a major change in the built environment on travel and activity patterns, injuries and wellbeing.
