Kyle Turner

DPhil Student, Population Health

Kyle's research focuses on how different environments influence childhood eating and activity choices.

Kyle joined the British Heart Foundation Health Promotion Research Group at Oxford's Nuffield Department of Population Health in 2012, under the watch of Dr. Charlie Foster and Dr. Emma Plugge. Given his unorthodox Australian behaviour, two supervisors were considered insufficient for Kyle, and so his D.Phil. is also supervised by Professor Steven Allender of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Obesity Prevention at Deakin University, Australia. 

Kyle writes regularly on topical matters relating to NCDs prevention and coordinates the 3T sessions for the NCD Action Network. His doctoral research pertains to the school environment and its impact upon student weight status and weight-related behaviours. This research is being completed in partnership with the WHO CC for Obesity Prevention in Australia.

Kyle previously completed his Masters in Applied Epidemiology at the Australian National University in 2010 and worked for two years at the Royal Brisbane Children's Hospital.
