        Lecturer

        Tim has interests in the application of discourse analysis to  understand                        health-care restructuring.  Recently he has been developing a critical                             geography of  health to investigate the ways in which epidemiologically                            defined notions of risk are employed in health governance and policy.

diannapic        Dr Dianna Smith
        Research Fellow

        Dianna has interests in social and spatial health inequalities
. She utilises                         population simulation techniques to create estimates of health outcomes and                 behaviours  within small areas. Using such an approach allows the modelling of the         impact of policy interventions on local-level health outcomes .
