John is the Director of the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group. After completing degrees in Social Policy at the University of York, he joined the School of Health and Related Research at the University of Sheffield where he contributes epidemiological evidence and policy analyses to public health debates around alcohol. He provided key evidence that informed the implementation of minimum unit pricing (MUP) in several countries and the development of new low risk drinking guidelines in the UK and Australia. He now leads projects examining the decline in youth drinking and the public health impact of no- and low-alcohol drinks.
