Research Assistant

Laura Nixon

Laura is a Research Assistant for ActEarly based at Wolfson Institute of Population Health at QMUL. She supports work across multiple themes, primarily focusing on a meta-evaluation to assess the impact of the ActEarly interventions. Laura has recently worked at the Population, Policy and Practice department at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health on an international clinical trial evaluating the impact of different dosages of maternal B12 supplementation during pregnancy on the cognitive development of their infant. She received an MSc in Health Psychology from UCL, and her research has focussed on working with vulnerable populations to tackle health inequities, including projects about people in prison, pregnant women, and children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
