Sian de Bell

Research Associate

 South Cloisters 

 

South Cloisters, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

Sian is a Research Associate in the Exeter HS&DR Evidence Synthesis Centre, where she conducts syntheses of evidence about the organisation and delivery of health and social care in the UK. 

Qualifications

  • 2018 PhD Environment and Health, University of York
  • 2013 BSc (Hons) Biology, University of Bristol

Career

Sian joined the Univeristy of Exeter in 2018, working in the European Centre for Environment and Human Health (ECEHH), initially on Greenkeeper, an Innovate UK project with Vivid Economics and Barton Willmore, which developed a toolkit to value the benefits of urban green spaces. She was then an Impact Fellow on the Informing environmental investment for health and wellbeing project, funded by the South West Partnership for Environment and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP).  

Previously, Sian studied BSc Biology at the University of Bristol before moving to the University of York for her PhD. This was part of the ESRC Health of Populations and Ecosystems (HOPE) project and investigated the benefits of freshwater blue space for health and well-being. She analysed UK-wide data on the benefits of blue spaces, as well as using qualitative methods to investigate the dual benefits of an urban river restoration project for the environment and human well-being. After finishing her PhD, she worked on a qualitative systematic review of environmental influences on older people’s travel behaviour.

Research

Research interests

Sian is interested in evidence syntheses using qualitative and quantitative approaches and the translation of research into policy and practice. More broadly, she is interested in the role of the environment in supporting health and wellbeing, including: (i) the role of environmental quality in determining health; (ii) the multiple values (monetary and non-monetary) of different environments; and (iii) environmental health inequalities.
