Professor of Lifecourse Epidemiology, UCL

Prof Kelly leads work on health and development during childhood and adolescence. Of particular interest are: -the causes and consequences of social and ethnic inequalities - the ways in which familial and broader social contextual influences combine to shape health and development - the uptake and retention of health related behaviours during late childhood and adolescence - the links between early life exposures e.g. drinking and smoking in pregnancy, birthweight and infant feeding and later health and development.
