Luke joined the team in the summer of 2015 to work on a series of systematic reviews examining the relationship between poverty and non-communicable diseases in the most deprived populations of the world’s poorest countries. He is a British physician and global health analyst who has worked for a number of international public health organisations including WHO Europe, the Harvard Health Systems Cluster and the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network. Luke studied both medicine and international health at the University of Bristol and earned his PGCE in clinical education from Plymouth University whilst working as a junior doctor at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. He recently returned from the states where he earned an MPH in Global Health, specialising in public health leadership. Passionate about social justice, Luke aims to influence the political economy of global health to the benefit of the poor with his research and policy work.
