Dr Pia Wohland-Jakhar

Lecturer in Health Inequalities

Pia is a quantitative Health Geographer with expertise in: health inequalities - across geographical areas, time, age and population sub-groups; population projections and future composition of the UK population; and population ageing. I have worked on a wide range of projects, including research in ethnic mortality in the UK and health differences for local areas in the UK and across European countries. She is also a keen data scientist and R programmer and has developed software for ethnic population projections in the UK.

She is also the Chair of the HYMS library committee.
