Gill Mein


My title of senior lecturer in Health and Wellbeing reflects my professional back ground and work experience. I previously she worked as a health visitor and midwife in the UK and overseas with Save the Children on emergency and development projects. I obtained an MSc from the Department of Public Health and Policy at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and worked as a Research Fellow on the Whitehall II study as project leader for the retirement project for several years.

I have considerable research experience using a variety of methodologies and I am currently involved in several studies. My research interests include participation in longitudinal studies, inequalities in health, ageing, retirement, dementia, exercise interventions in longitudinal illnesses, and the satisfaction of carers of stroke survivors with social care. I moved to St George's in 2006 and enjoy teaching all health professionals at St George's University of London. I teach research methods, health promotion, social determinants of health at BSc and MSc levels, and love supervising student projects. I am module leader for the postgraduate research methods module. I am currently chair of the faculty ethics committee and I also sit on Senate.
