Dr Fiona Cox
Research Fellow



Background
I recently joined the School of Medicine to work with Jo Inchley and Dorothy Currie in CAHRU on the new Scottish Schools Health and wellbeing Improvement research Network (SHINE).
My research experience has been broad, though my main background is in Psychology (cognitive development). After completing my PhD at St Andrews I worked in various academic and non-academic disciplines and settings, including Dundee University, Tayside NHS Directorate of Public Health and Figure 8 Consultancy Services. The common theme running through my research has been vulnerable or underserved people, with topics including: ethnic minority health needs; reading development; healthcare for homeless people with disabilities; assistive technologies; addiction services; adult learning needs; and rural sexual health.
I returned to the University of St Andrews in 2009, as Research Officer for the Centre for Housing Research’s Supporting People project, and in 2010 I joined the Scottish Longitudinal Study team as a Support Officer. From 2012-2018 my main role was as Project Manager of the Census & Administrative data LongitudinaL Studies Hub (CALLS Hub) supporting and promoting the Research Support Units of the UK Census Longitudinal Studies (ONS LS, NILS and the SLS).
