Joyce Coker

Dr Joyce Coker is a Research Associate at Cambridge Public Health. She has a background in Human Physiology and Public Health. During her PhD (University of Leeds, 2015), she used a mixed method approach to examine the influence of statin-use on the health beliefs and health behaviours of adults at risk of cardiovascular disease in South Yorkshire, England and in urban and semi-urban cities in Nigeria.

Jane Fleming

Dr Jane Fleming moved into research from a clinical background in nursing, mainly with older people, through epidemiology training and a PhD on falls and their consequences in older old age. She has since co-ordinated the Cambridge City over-75s Cohort (CC75C) Study, supporting postgraduate students, visiting researchers and external collaborators working on a wide range of ageing-related and neuropathological research projects.

Lindsay is a Canadian Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Cambridge in Public Health. She is from Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada and has earned an MSc from McGill University (Neuroscience), and a PhD from Dalhousie University (Interdisciplinary Health Studies). She blends insights from epidemiology, public health, and neuroscience to better understand how dementia arises and how public health approaches may be able to address prevention.

Abhirup Ghosh

Mobile phones and personal wearable devices will play a major role in deploying public health screening and monitoring applications at scale, due to their pervasive penetration in the population and capability to sense the intricate details of daily lives. My research interest is to build machine learning algorithms and systems that are suitable for these applications and can run on the resource constrained end-devices. Alongside, I also care about the privacy of the users and want to protect individual’s data while enabling aggregate inferences.

I am an NIHR doctoral fellow (2022-25), researching population-level approaches to dementia risk reduction. During my PhD I will be using mixed methods, including quantitative analysis, qualitative interviewing, policy analysis, and systematic reviewing. My background is as an applied public health academic, and I have been training as a public health specialty registrar in the East of England region since 2018. I qualified from Keele Medical School in 2015, and passed an MPhil in Public Health at the University of Cambridge in 2018-19 with distinction.
