Honorary Research Associate
Pippa is an honorary research associate at King's College London with a specialist interest in infant feeding. Her research interests focus on cross-disciplinary collaborations that aim to implement evidence-based programmes to reduce health inequalities among families and children. She currently works clinically as an infant feeding supporter. Previously, Pippa was a researcher for ‘What Works for Early Intervention and Children’s Social Care’ (WWEICSC), one of the UK government ‘What Works’ centres, supporting the use of evidence-based early interventions to improve the lives of children at risk of experiencing poor health outcomes. Prior to joining WWEICSC in 2020, Pippa completed her PhD at King’s College London, exploring perceptions and practices of infant feeding among women who give birth to larger birthweight infants. During her time at King’s, Pippa developed a mixed-methods research programme founded on the success of multidisciplinary collaborations between clinicians, academics, and charity stakeholders across health psychology, women’s health and maternity research, and public health. She continues to teach on courses delivered to psychology and medical students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
