Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, Volume 103, Issue 2, February 2014, Pages 137–149

Diabetes is a serious and increasing global health burden and estimates of prevalence are essential for appropriate allocation of resources and monitoring of trends. The SDG 3.4 target for 2030 is to reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being. This paper concludes that low and middle income countries will experience the greatest increase of diabetes over the next 22 years, highlighting inequalities in healthcare and nutritition.

Sustainable Materials and Technologies, Volume 1, 2014, Pages 2-7

Currently lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries used in significant numbers in vehicles are designed to last the life of the vehicle. They will not reach their end-of-life for another 10 years. This paper examines how the model used to recycle lead-acid batteries could be applied to Li-ion batteries and ensure steps are put in place so that the economical and sustainable benefits can be achieved at the end of its useful life. This addresses SDG 12, in particular waste reduction and reuse.

This research develops SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities). Clinicians often respond to health care needs of transgender patients with uncertainty. Discomfort with uncertainty leads clinicians to reinforce medical authority with stigma, therefore this research explains why functional theories of stigma should incorporate the role of power relations.

Transport Policy, March 2012

Research since 2000 has clearly shown the links between transport disadvantage, poverty, and economic and social exclusion. This paper reflects on the extent to which a social exclusion approach to research on transport disadvantage has been successful in opening up new avenues of research enquiry and/or identifying new theoretical perspectives and/or methodological approaches. It aligns with and shows the connections between SDGs 1, 10 and 11.
