Diego Aguilar Ramirez

DPhil Student

Diego joined the Clinical Trial Service Unit & Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU) and Lincoln College in October 2018 as a DPhil student in Population Health. His research is focused on exploring the metabolomics profile of a Mexican population and assessing how such profiles change in individuals with diabetes or kidney disease using data from the Mexico City Prospective Study (MCPS). Diego is supervised by Associate Professor Jonathan Emberson, Associate Professor Will Herrington, and Professor Colin Baigent.

Diego joined Oxford in 2017 for his MSc in Global Health Science at the Nuffield Department of Population Health and Kellogg College. Also using data from the MCPS, his MSc dissertation explored the management of diabetes in Mexico City and assessed the changes observed between the baseline survey (1998-2006) and the resurvey (2015-2018). Diego’s studies have been supported by a Nuffield Department of Population Health & British Heart Foundation Scholarships.

After finishing medical school in his hometown Mexico City in 2015, Diego moved into research in public health and epidemiology, with a special interest in diabetes and kidney disease. He aims to pursue a career in academia and produce high-quality and meaningful research that informs policy-makers and improves the quality of care in both developed and developing countries.
