Nikkita Henshall (PhD student)

I graduated from the University of Hull, in 2009 with a BSc (Hons) in Geography. While at Hull University, I developed an interest in understanding the relationship between space and choice, in terms of food consumption. In the academic year of 2009/2010 I attended University College London (UCL) where I completed an MSc in Geographical Information Science (GIS).  During my time at UCL I completed a dissertation looking at the feasibility of a larger project which would analyse and compare the food networks of students in different universities, a project which was supervised by Dr Kate Jones from the University of Portsmouth. My MSc has given me the technological background for handling, understanding and analysing spatial datasets. I am currently a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Dr Jamie Pearce and Dr Niamh Shortt, looking at the urban environment, nutrition, physical exercise and obesity.
