Work and interests
Leandro contributed on the TIGTHAT project, which lays the scientific foundations of a health impact assessment tool to estimate health impacts of transport choices applicable in a wide variety of urban settings around the world. Within this project, his contributions include two dose-response meta-analyses encompassing the relationship between physical activity and multiple physical and mental disease endpoints (protocols here and here), and the first health impact assessment model that quantifies the health impacts of changes in population travel patterns in an African setting (Accra, Ghana).
Since July 2019, Leandro is a Lecturer in Complexity Science in Public Health at Queen’s University Belfast Centre for Public Health. For more details, visit: https://pure.qub.ac.uk/en/persons/leandro-garcia.
