Mr Calum Davey

BSc MUSA MSc

Assistant Professor

As an undergraduate I studied Natural Sciences, focussing on Neuroscience.  Hoping to broaden the impact of my future career, I travelled to the University of Pennsylvania to study an MSc in Urban Spatial Analytics.  After a stint in Vietnam as a GIS tech at for the French NGO CartONG, I studied an MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM.  

Since graduating I have worked at LSHTM, first in the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health, and now in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy.

Teaching

I co-founded and co-organise the Evaluation of Public Health Interventions module. I teach an introduction to quasi-experimental methods. I also teach on statistics and epidemiology courses and support tutees. 

Research

My main interests lie at the interface of health and 'development', the social determinants of health, health inequity, gender, income, education, and intervention evaluation.  My work is predominantly on cluster randomized controlled trials, their design and analysis, and some related methodological work on stepped-wedge designs and non-random evaluation methods.

I am a Design and Analysis theme leader in the Centre for Evaluation. 

I provide technical support to evaluations led by the STRIVE consortium.  I work with SIGMA, and on the SAPPHIRE trial in Zimbabwe.

I am supported by a MRC Strategic Skills Award to research the impact of the mobility of sex workers on health, access to healthcare, and the validity of cluster randomised trials.
