Life course epidemiology: statistical approaches with examples from the epidemiology of child growth and cardiometabolic health

Laura Howe is a statistical epidemiologist at the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol. She has expertise in the modelling of repeated measures data. Her applied research focuses on the following two areas: life course epidemiology of obesity and cardiometabolic health, and socio- economic inequalities in health. One key element of her research in life course epidemiology is the modelling of trajectories. Laura has used multilevel models to estimate trajectories of child growth in ALSPAC and other cohorts, and has utilised these trajectories to explore a broad range of determinants and consequences of child growth and obesity. The theme of analysing change also runs through much of Laura's work on socioeconomic inequalities in health, where she has explored the emergence and development of inequalities in health, behaviour and educational outcomes across the life course.
