Public Health Modelling, Global and Local Health Impact Assessment of Transport – GLASST and Global Diet and Physical Activity Research Group
Left the Unit in 2022
Current work and interests
Lambed undertook a PhD in Public Health Modelling, supervised by Dr James Woodcock. His PhD focused on quantifying the health impacts of active transport resulting from different transport policies in LMICs. He looked at how to curate data for health impact modelling, generate robust estimates for transport health impacts and make results relevant to policymakers in these settings. Lambed left the Unit in December 2022.
Background and experience
Before starting his PhD, Lambed worked for seven years as a physician in the Cameroon Ministry of Health (initially as a GP and later as a Public health Physician). In interludes, he worked as a field doctor and epidemiologist for the Doctors Without Borders and research assistant in the unit. Overtime his interest has grown in upstream determinants of health.
He is broadly interested in quantifying the health impacts of policies beyond the health sector and interacting with policy makers to promote policies that mitigate health risks. For now, he is keen to collaborate with anyone interested in travel behaviours and transport health impact in Sub-Saharan African cities.
Lambed holds an MD degree (University of Buea – Cameroon), MSc in Paediatric Emergency Medicine (University of Edinburgh – UK) and Joint Master of Public Health (Université Catholique de Louvain – Belgium and Universidad de Oviedo – Spain).
