Hannah Roberts

I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2013 with a degree in Geography, and went on to study Geographical Information Systems (MSc) at the University of Leeds. Whilst studying for my master's degree I undertook a research placement module, which allowed me the opportunity to work with the Bradford Institute for Health Research (BIHR). The placement inspired me to continue to work in the field of health research, and I will be starting my PhD in October. My research will focus on describing and modelling the influences of the environment on green space utilisation, and its influence of health and well-being. By coincidence, my work will be carried out under the guidance of supervisors based at the BIHR, the University of Leeds and the University of Sheffield.
