Dr Pia Hardelid
My research focuses on using routinely collected health data (including birth and death certificates, hospital admission records and general practice databases) for child health research. I have used these data to estimate the effectiveness of influenza vaccines, determine the role of chronic conditions in childhood mortality, and carry out international comparisons of childhood morbidity and mortality.
I am a post-doctoral researcher on the Kids’ Environment and Health project. We are developing a novel data resource for researchers to investigate environmental determinants of children’s physical and mental health. I am also involved in research exploring how nature and urban greenspaces can be utilised to promote positive mental well-being in both neurotypical and neurodiverse populations.
