Jason Lacombe

DPhil Student

Jason Lacombe is a DPhil candidate and joined the Nuffield Department of Population Health in 2016. Before starting at NDPH, Jason completed an undergraduate degree, and a Master of Science degree at the University of Toronto, and was an invited scholar to visit Oxford’s Cancer Epidemiology Unit where he undertook a project to create predictive models for site-specific fractures in post-menopausal women.

His British Heart Foundation funded doctoral project looks at the links between lifestyle factors – activity levels, diet, alcohol, and tobacco use – and cardiovascular disease, with the aim to inform policy-making in cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment.

Outside of his academic life, Jason plays for the Oxford Varsity Blues team and is the NDPH social secretary.
