Staff Profile

Viktorija Kesaite

PhD Student

Kath Maguire

I am a PhD student at the University of Exeter. My research focuses on employing econometric methods to examine the causes and consequences of childhood obesity. My research aims to estimate the future impact of childhood obesity on health events/outcomes and on broader societal outcomes such as employment and education.

Prior to joining the University of Exeter I worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Cambridge. My role included researching and analysing macroeconomic data using stress test scenarios, an instrument developed as part of the Cambridge Risk Framework. I also contributed towards the analysis on the economic and societal impact of cyber attacks, terrorist attacks and exploring the possible liabilities in the shipping industry following various marine incidents.
