His work has focused on the role of place in understanding health outcomes and health-related behaviours, including smoking status, physical activity and obesity. With colleagues at Edinburgh and Glasgow he has established the Centre for Research on Environment, Society & Health (CRESH).

I am also Editor-in-Chief of the international journal Health & Place, as well as co Editor-in-Chief (with Professor Susan Elliott) of Wellbeing, Space & Society.
