Dr Nicole Stone is a Senior Research Fellow within The Centre for Sexual Health Research at the University of Southampton.

I completed my first degree in Population Studies and later my PhD at the University of Southampton under the supervision of Professor Roger Ingham.

Since 1995 I have been working at the Centre for Sexual Health Research (CSHR) leading and co-ordinating a variety of projects in both the UK and internationally using both qualitative and quantitative methods; these include work on access to services, school based sex education, contraceptive use and early sexual conduct, service evaluation (static and outreach) and needs assessment.

I have conducted training courses in the use of quantitative and qualitative methods in the area of sexual activity both at home and internationally. I also have experience of handling and analysing large and complex demographic data sets, using both hierarchical and non-hierarchical analysis techniques, questionnaire design and implementation and interview and focus group facilitation.

Research interests

Working within the Centre for Sexual Health Research my main area of interest focuses on the sexual and reproductive health of young people both in the UK, and more recently, in developing countries through my involvement with the DFID funded 'Safe Passages to Adulthood' New Knowledge Programme.
