Biography

Ivan Gee is a Senior Lecturer in Public Health contributing to research projects, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and PhD supervision.

Ivan's research interests have focussed on environmental impacts on health. He has had a particular focus on tobacco related research and has conducted work that has supported the development of the Smokefree 07 legislation in England and informed recent national advertising campaigns. Ivan is also interested in the impact of other environmental exposures on health and the increasing public health problems associated with alcohol.

Ivan teaches a range of subjects but has particular responsibilities for teaching epidemiology, research methods, health protection and tobacco control on our MSc programmes. Ivan also contributes to teaching environmental issues, demographics, health protection and research methods on our BSc programme.

Ivan has successfully supervised a number of PhD students on a variety of topics generally using quantitative approaches and he has also examined PhD students from other institutions, most recently a PhD candidate from Aberdeen University studying exposures to second-hand smoke. He is a reviewer for many journals including Tobacco Control, Atmospheric Environment, Journal of Environmental Monitoring, Tobacco Induced Diseases, Indoor & Built Environment, Science of the Total Environment, Chemosphere and Environment International.
